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!!!
