Greetings Fellow LJs,
I’m working on a 1/2 oak plywood “box”. May be closer to a hanging shelf/cabinet. I suppose that is not the issue. The poject is almost ready but my selection of hinges stopped me for now. The project will reside in the laundry room and will hide the dryer’s vent “pipe/coil” as it exits the house.
I applied a finish which my wife pointed out is less than ideal. I applied a “one day fnish” and it turned out lighter and less shiny than the cabinets I’m trying to match. I applied boiled linseed oil, sprayed some shellac and followed that with a coat of wax. The outer oak sheet is very thin I noticed.
At this point I’d like to get the finish off and as mentioned, get it darker and shinnier.
Thanks for reading and any shared thoughts.
