    Just completed the built in with the dovetailed shelves

    A few months back I posted in the q&a section about using a ts molding head to cut sliding dovetails for a project I had coming up.

    Just finished the install at the customers home this week. It worked beautifully!!

    theres no way Im showing the the rest of my built in thread after seeing this.
    that's a beautiful job, how come you didn't come here and do my attic built in for me?

    sorta lets me know where I stand on the woodworking talent scale.

    cant wait to show my wife this thread. While that may not be an attic, it still has a slight slant in the ceiling, but its a much larger area than Im working in. The unit fits beautifully in that space, the matching ceiling, great design.

    one question. did you finish the table top/desk top surfaces with a different gloss than the cabinet door faces?

    Very nice indeed, Rich. I like the way you wrapped the shelves around the corner.

    Allen don't short yourself you do great work!!!
    To answer your question. No, I used the same product throughout, its just the way the light is hitting it. I used Targets EM9000 urethane sprayed with a C.A.T hvlp setup
    The first two coats were gloss and the last coat was satin.

    Nope not gonna do that here, don't need to start more ideas!

    I know a lot of people aren't all that fond of pine but for me when the grain is showcased like this its one of the prettier woods. I really like how you worked this one into the space.
