Cool It's Late, But It's Getting There

It's not done yet, and yes this is a late Christmas Present for my FIL, however I wanted to show it off now. It's a Curio for his model cars.



The base was installed tonight. I still have glue blocks to install and leveling feet, then of course the stain, but it is getting there. Need to check on the glass too.

Construction pics can be found here. http://www.rhodeswoodsmith.com/current_project.htm

Enjoy!

Tom

It's funny you say that, cause this is mostly out of my head. I got the base design and some of the trim detail from a differnt set of plans, but the size, main design, and hardware choices are pretty much my design in my mind and not on paper.

Sometimes that's good... Sometimes, not so good.

Thanks to all for the positive feedback!

Yup, lookin' good. The only fault I can find is that your shop is way too clean.

Oh come on... You know he only cleaned up that corner to take the picture.


Looks good Tom. How do you finish things, spray or brush?

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

Wipe on with a rag.

And yes, I do clean up before taking pics.

Talking

Still waiting on the glass parts, but the finish is almost done. One more coat of Urethane and we'll be all set.

Looking great! I'm with Rob though, next time you post a picture could you at least throw a bag of garbage on the floor in the background so the rest of us won't feel so bad.

The cabinet is lookin' real good! Is that going to get some beveled glass or plain? Beveled would be the cat's meow.
I just replaced my lost digital camera with another. I think for sh*** and grins, I'll post a picture of what my, uh, shop looks like. After seeing it though, no one will probably ever want my advice on anything again. It's that bad.
I'll take a pic later...

Beveled would of been nice, but I'm doing regular double-strengh glass in front. The glass shelves and doors are 1/4" shelves with polished edges.

I'll get pics when it's all set up.

I like to clean up once a year, whether it needs it or not. I'm almost due.

I humbly bow before the Clutter King.

But like the fish that got away, had I not cleaned mine last week you would have at least proffered a tie.
