I built this cabinet for a friend who collects Stickley, but couldn’t find a piece to fit a specific location in her office to serve as a printer stand. It was my first project where I started with rough lumber and went all the way through the process of milling, edge gluing to create wider stock and all the other steps in producing the piece. I think the most interesting part of the process was researching and implementing the process of ammonia fuming the quarter sawn white oak to create a piece that would blend perfectly with the antique pieces that my friend already owned.

I actually built a light weight box of plywood strips as a frame wrapped in heavy duty painter’s plastic. I taped up all the seems with packing tape. Worked out great!

Thanks everybody!!! I really love working with this qs white oak and I have some more pieces planned as soon as warm weather comes and I can do more fuming. Industrial strength ammonia is some VERY nasty stuff and I would never try fuming indoors.
