I made some progress the rest of the frame beyond the cabinet and it’s coming along a bit faster than the cabinet. I’m certainly getting a lot of practice making and fitting tenons.
It’s coming along very well, Marilyn!
Thanks! I still have many, many miles to go before I sleep. ;D
Can’t wait to see this done, have you thought about the finish?
You and me both. I have two clocks I’m dying to get to, but I’m not starting them until this is done.
I’ll probably use the same finish I used on my tool cabinet – Pro Fin (Daly’s). Its held up well on that cabinet and the cherry on that cabinet has mellowed to a really nice color.
I think that’s a varnish finish according to the recent Flexner column in Popular Woodworking.
I’m experimenting with finishes. I really like how the finish came out on my shaker stool and tool chest (shellac), and am going to try something slightly different with the 3-legged stool I’m working on.
Did you go to Glen Huey’s “Finishes that Pop” talk at WIA? I have the DVD if you want to watch it.
I might put shellac under the daly’s to prevent blotching.
I didn’t make it to that at WIA and would like to see it. I promise to send it back if you send it my way.
Looks great…..and you have a few more tenons to go
Yippee! I finished them up tonight. Thanks!
