About This Project

Pine and hardwood plywood

This project took several months of off and on work but I am very happy with the results. Got the wood from the local lowes and the hardware from Ace Hardware. Used the Kreg Jig pocket hole system to hide the fasteners which makes a big difference. I also used flat black spray paint for the hardware.

Followed the plans on this website to the T and they were pretty good. The only change I had to make was adding some wood shims for the magnetic door closures. It also wasn't clear where to place the center shelf front and back but I figured out it needed to be back. Also cut some holes in the back for cords and made my own custom legs rather than pay so much for store bought ones.

I made some other furniture from this website so I used the same oxidized finish. I used flat black hardware where I could and spray painted everything else. The stain was great, really easy to make and stains really well. I covered the stain with the recommended wax which gives it a really nice shine and is very smooth.

Huge thanks to this website!
