It's a beautiful piece. Are there plans available? I'd like to try one as well. It looks great .
The article by Mike Dunbar in Fine Woodworking has the details. I saved the article but don't know where it is...imagine that.
Pine is my favorite. Hands Down!!! Thanks for the post Bob. That piece will be a legacy.
Thanks, Doug and KD. I came across this piece while perusing old issues of Fine Woodworking at our local library. Since then I've discovered that the issue (# 151) is available at the Taunton site
It's also available for download by purchasing a subscription the the Fine WoodWorking site. As with most Fine Woodworking articles, some information is left to the imagination, but there is adequate data to build the piece. Hope this helps. As Norm says, "This was a fun project to build."
Bob,as far as the finish is concerned,did you say that you used milk paint,then sprayed a coat of dewaxed shellac over that and then 2 coats of pre-cat lac? Why? Didn't it change the color of the original dried milk paint from a dullish green to brighter green?
Good catch, Will. I left out the part about a coat of oil, which was applied onto the milk paint. According to Dunbar, oil evens out the color and, at least in this case, brought some additional depth to achieve just the color shading I was hoping for. I let the oil cure for several days before spraying the shellac.
I think that's a great cabinet design and your work looks outstanding. But I have to tell you I would have chosen a different finish. Just my personal taste though. Nice work.
