Looking at the LJ homepage a few days ago, I saw a project that remembered me of some stuff built as a study. The question was to reduce the parts to its minimum expression, as far as the furniture could accomplished the task it was made for. I was looking for a usefull container and I find that this shelves container was a good solution: shelves were better than drawers for my purpouse. I can take any shelve anywhere. I found it was such a nice solution that I built also a couple for my children school material. The photos belong to the small one: about 60 cm (high), 31 cm (wide) and 25 cm (deep); the big one is about 60 cm (wide). I built those for my children in cedarwood and finished it with wax.

Very slick, nice woodwork and pleasing to the eye.

Is this all wood on wood with no metal hardware?

Very nice. Good use of space. What type of wax did you use?

P a B u l l , yes, no metal hardware at all.
Z u k i , I used to prepare it by myself with an old recipe. But I found that people don’t have time to take care of the finish, so nowadays I use a water-base laque. The recipe contained ¿turpentine?, bee-wax and carnauba-wax: it is a “vegetable” wax; its amount determined the hardness of the mixture, so how glossy could be polished the finish). I was so practice that I didn´t use exact measures: I mixed it depending on the wood I was using, how glossy the finish had to be and how much I was going to work on it.

Nice model Alejandro. The lock miters look like a quick way to make a drawer.

That’s a very clever design. Now I’m more curious as to your wax recipe! I’m very interested!
