This was one of those projects that I agreed to build without really knowing what it was. A co worker said ” hey I need one of these built can you do it?” ..sure I can ..so 5 hrs later doing research on the internet and I came up with some ideas. As usual I built a ” proof of concept ” to get a feel for what will work and what will not.
What you see in these pictures is what was learned from a lot of mistakes,and trial and error. I must admit this customer was one of those customers who provided very little input despite nearly pleading with him for what he wanted or didn’t want..” I trust you” is all he would say which I both hate this and love at the same time. I used red oak for the body and mahogany for the accents and crosses. Pocket hole joinery was used to pull it all together along with some brad and pin nails. A light coat of minwax pecan stain followed by 5 coats of clear enamel which was interned lightly sanded with 0000 steel wool and finally a coat of paste wax. It gets delivered later today. I hope he likes it.
Thanks for looking ..
