Some old wood given another go around.
I needed a new TV stand and this is what appeared.
The piece is solid oak and measures 50” X 26” X 18”.
There are two very large drawers for storage which were joined with box/finger joints.
To obtain a more unified color from many different shades of lumber, I used antique walnut stain and linseed oil, with a wax coat.
The top & bottom molding were colored black to match existing room furniture.
The milling and gluing process took most of the time and with Florida in full heat & humidity season, shorter workshop sessions were necessary.
Love giving this stuff a second chance.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
