    Curly Cherry Plasma TV Stand

    Overview: It has been a long time in the process, but here is my latest creation. Itís an adaptation of a Thos. Moser design. It was built for client who wanted to show off his 50Ē plasma screen TV. Iíve never built anything like this before and it was quite a challenge to figure out how I wanted to build it. This project seemed to fight me every step of the way. But Iím grateful that it turned out as well as it did.

    Wood: Cherry in all itís forms along with hard maple drawers with birch ply bottoms. Today it is very overcast Ė of course. The day I finally get to snap some shots, and the sun isnít out! Needless to say, the figure really pops in the sun!

    Hardware: All hardware is from Horton Brass except the L brackets which are from the local Borg and then blued using Gun Blue. The drawer slides from Lee Valley.

    Finish: I opted not to use an undercoat of BLO on this project. Because of all the separate parts, I figured I wanted to do as little finishing steps as possible so I shot just straight lacquer.

    I think that's about it. If I left anything out, I'm sure you'll let me know.

    Thanks and have a blessed weekend!!!

    Very nice work, Jason. Of course that's par for the course with you. I really like the details on the sides of the cabinet. Glad to see you sharing some pics here.

    Outstanding work Jason. Of course, I knew it would be. The details on the ends are what causes this piece to be outstanding IMHO.

    Jason,

    Haven't seen a project that you've built that wasn't amazing. Great job again.

    An extremely beautiful piece of furniture. I really love the design. I live right here in Maine where Thomas Moser builds his furniture and I've gone to his showroom in Portland. He would truly like what you have designed and built. Nice job!
