I had a few pieces of old pine given to me so I decided to make a rustic jelly cabinet out of it,my wife came up with the idea of turning it to a small gun cabinet instead ( she must have been sick of seeing the two rifles behind my bedroom door all the time),so I, as usual listen to her because she’s always right.

Thank you Robert,This is the fifth project that I used water based Varathane( diamond wood finish) over diluted waxed shellac without any adhesion problem ,3 of the projects are already more than 2 years old.

Primitive??? Looks pretty awesome to me. Now that you’re practiced up I’m quite certain your wife will be needing that jelly cabinet. Hope you still have some wood left. Thanks for sharing.
