Like everything lately, this project seemed to take me FOR-EVER! But it’s done now, and I think it came out great. It’s square, solid and straight. The proportions work, the finish is a great color and has a nice warm glow, and the stained glass panel work nicely in the door.
It’s completely different in character than the Byrdcliffe cabinet, definitely squarely in the Mission vernacular. I installed it in the guest room, perhaps a skosh too high in retrospect. The room sorely needs a repaint, but my next project is to make a pair of sconces for the room which will entail punching holes in the drywall to re-wire it, so that can wait.
I’m off to clean up the shop so I can unpack my new tool which should be delivered by 3:00 this afternoon. And start in on the sconces.
