Looks good and functional—can’t beat that, and besides, it’s done! Nice job.

That is a good looking finish on pine. What’s your secret?

Quickies are fine, as long as the bill payment’s a royal knee trembler too.
Love those wide shelf edges.

Thanks guys, Buckethead, I am no expert on staining pine, in fact I rarely stain anything, but this had a wipe on spirit based stain as a base colour to tone it down – Colron Walnut, and then a couple coats mahogany coloured acrylic varnish, leave to dry and overcoat with clear satin poly.

It looks great and beefy, like the stain and the finish. Great work!
