« Part 5: The Finish Part 6 of Oak Wall/Canopy series no next part

It is dyed, stained and sprayed. Now for the final assembly. There is a lot more on this project, as in final assembly, then on most of my projects. I had to add the lights in the piers, headboard and header. I usually use curio lights behind the shelves, but I wanted to try some long florescent lights this time.

I am still waiting for the glass for the top and the smoked glass doors. They should be ready today and I can post the finish project.

Here are a couple pictures:
