My penance for purchasing some new tools was to build a armoire for my daughter. It will be used for clothes and a tv on top once I build the top part. This is the chest of drawers lower section.
It is red oak that I did not really want to stain but that is what she wanted. It is nothing fancy as I am still learning. The top is red oak ply with edge banding. Face is solid red oak as is the fronts. Sides are red oak ply also. Finish is red mag., and 2 coats clear gloss then 2 coats clear satin. Brushed on.
Part 2. The top will be 40 inches tall with doors to enclose the tv. I want it taller because later she may just want to use it as shirt/clothes storage like a closet.
I did not have plans, just kind of thought it up. I do not know what style this would go with but she and I like it.
