I made this for my GORGEOUS wife for putting up with me for our first year of marriage! Our one year anniversary is this Sunday coming up, 3/25/12. I made one of these for my mother in-law last summer out of popular and stained it with All-in-One stain and poly, that was a learning experience to say the least. lol

I’m going to let it cure for another 4-5 days, then buff it smooth with White Diamond Compound and hang it up, maybe add a little extra anniversary present in there too :)

I made it out of 4/4 Black Walnut, used dovetails to hold the box together, blind daddo’s for the shelves, and tongue and grove for the door. Stained it with General Finishes water based Brown Mahogany, then sprayed 5 coats of water based Enduro Pre-Cat Urethane out of the Earlex 5500 HVLP – (NEW TOY) ......excuse to by a new toy for this project. Finish came our extremely well, can’t wait to finish my next project, the 5500 and water based finishes makes life so much easier!

You are doing it all wrong!!! The 1st anniversary you get her mcDonalds. Bloody ‘ell how are you going to top this? Mark my words if you keep this up you’ll have to buy round the world cruises and Bentleys in just a few years. Stellar job Mate!! It’s beautifull. And may your marriage be long and loving!!!

Very nice work. I like the design. I prefer natural wood, but you did the staining well. Your wife will be the judge of how it looks!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Robert, I will have to agree with you on the natural wood, I originally wanted to finished it with an amber top coat, but my wife really likes darker wood, and that’s what she wanted.

really nice job Lance. Your wife is going to love it. I will have to explore some of your finishing materials as I have not heard of them before. Thanks for posting.
