Wow. I'm sitting here with mouth open, ready to show my coworkers but it will cause me shame in comparision.

Very nice job. Can you show a picture with the flat screen and doors open?

Thanks,

I always wait at least 5 days for the blo to dry thoroughly before applying a top coat.

Super looking cabinet.
You really popped the grain on that maple burl.
How long after appying the BLO did you wait to top coat?

I have always used "witches brew", but I dont get that kind of pop.

Thanks for posting.

The client installed the tv into the cabinet after I delivered the piece, so I didn't get a photo with the tv in place.

Thanks for the compliment!

I am normally not a fan of walnut and maple combinations, too contrasting, but this is beautiful.

Absolutely amazing!!!!!! Beautiful tight dovetails. I still need to repair mine sometimes, really trying to improve so I can hand cut mine like yours.

Thanks! Learning that dovetails always have some gaps is the first step to mastering the joint. Believe me, there are repairs all over the place. Keep the offcuts of the material you're using and they disappear easily.

My dovetails aren't entirely hand cut either. I start by cutting the tails with a simple jig on the bandsaw. It's simply an angle cut that rides along the fence. This starts you off on the right foot since all of the tails are perfectly straight and perfectly square to the boards face. Sawing tails with a handsaw is not for me.

After the tails are cut, careful scribing with a knife shows you where you need to be and everything else falls into place.
