I haven’t posted any projects here in quite a while. After receiving some nice comments on some old postings recently, I will try to post some new projects over the nest few days. I would be very interested in any comments re this project.
I had this air-dried walnut laid back for some time, and decided to use it in an armoire for myself. The construction is simple and plain. I resawed the door panels from the most figured pieces I had, and the doors are frame and panel design with stub tenons in the rails and mortised stiles. The unit is 3’ wide and over 6’ tall. Shelves are solid walnut boards edge glued, and the drawers are walnut fronts with pine sides and backs.
Ther project is finished with several coats of Maloof finish applied by hand over a base coat of shellac.
