This was a commissioned piece for a client that I do a lot of work for. The drawer fronts are actually laminated with a 10 mil paper backed veneer as I wasn’t able to find a source for sequenced walnut. The substrate is solid walnut but the fronts are laminated. I used a Russian Baltic birch for the cabinet with a 1/8” hardwood edge band on the front all sanded and sealed with Lenmar Duralaq then finished with Lenmar semigloss “black paint” precat lacquer finished off with a Lenmar high gloss precat clearcoat. I shot three coats of paint with three coats of clear wetsanding in between. Once I shot the final coat I used 3M super duty rubbing compound and then to a polishing compound to achieve the final finish. Thanks for looking!
