Setback Cabinet and Table.

Got back from overseas, and discovered that the wife had completely taken over my old “desk” (solid core door on screw on legs), and taken over most of the book shelf space to boot, and sharing wasn’t happening real well. I guess that’s what happens when you are both in grad school.

The Setback cabinet idea was taken from a Fine woodworking article, so I guess It could be called “Shaker Inspired.” Modified the height of the work surface to 29” to match the table top, and it is large enough to place the printer/scanner there. Shelves are non adjustable, but that helps with the stability. Plywood case, Poplar face frame and Pine trim. Would have been a neat look to put the doors on it, but I didn’t feel like messing with all that, Besides, I needed to use them quick. Total time from initial sketch to completion was right about 25hrs.

Table is right at 2’D x 4’W x 29” H, Poplar legs and apron, Ply with Pine edging for the Top.

Both pieces have Old Fashioned Milk Paint’s Sea Green (actually comes out an interesting grayish blue), topped with Wax. Natural wood, is Pine with Minwax’s Early American Stain, and multiple coats of Semi-gloss Poly.
