« Part 6: final assembly stages Part 7 of Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit series Part 8: Final shots »

The past few days have been wonderful for finishing! Not as humid right now, thank goodness!

In the process of the finish we first did a once over with sand up to 220, filled nail holes and then applied general finishes whitewash stain. Wiping off the excess allowed a lite look and a little grain to show. After this dried I went over the unit with 320 to create “rough or worn areas on edges and around details.
Next, we wiped minwax puritan pine with toner added…...Yeah, what a cool look to the unit! The stain picked up areas of the grain, areas we sanded with 320, and detailed profiles.

Finally, we sprayed several coats of waterborne Laq, with sanding in between. Some buffing and little waxing upon delivery and we will have completion.

Today, we will be loading the units and packing the tool trailer and heading out for delivery. There will be some assemble and fabrication needed on site with the TV unit and all, but we have some excited homeowners….and we are too.
