TV Cabinet made from Tasmanian Myrtle. Shaker style doors.
Full extension drawer slides. I used a solid timber back with a ship
lap joint rather than ply. Even though it’s a bit more work I’ll be
using this type of back from now on. Looks so much better.
Finished with Wipe-on Ploy.

Another excellent build Steevo…Beautiful wood and I am also a big fan of Minwax Wipe-on Poly, so easy to use and a great finish.
