I Got Wood!


My stack of clear pine, stickered and acclimating to the shop.

In the fast paced, action packed world of woodworking it’s always a good feeling to have a project ready to get underway. So today I picked up the rest of the Pine for my “Stickley” television stand. I have everything I need for the carcase, the legs, the shelf, the drawer divider, and the top. I still haven’t picked up the material for the drawers. Being that this is somewhat of an Arts and Crafts inspired piece I want to expose some of the joinery. And what better way to do that than to make the drawers with through dovetails! However, I may want to use something other than Pine for the drawer fronts for some added contrast. I’m planning on finishing this with the Minwax mahogany finish(#234 I believe), the same I used on the magazine cabinet. Being that it’s a dark stain I would like the drawer fronts to be just a bit lighter, mainly to highlight the dovetails. I’m hoping to have the side panels cut and dadoed and the legs cut to length and fitted with their stopped dadoes before the end of the weekend. I should be able to pull it off.
More good woodworking news, my Lie Nielsen closed throat router plane, which I ordered just this past Saturday, arrived yesterday. It is waiting patiently, ready to cut some stopped dadoes in the legs of the new TV stand. I sold my vintage Ampeg bass cabinet to pay for the plane as well as the wood for this project. So I hope it turns out nicely. I will post pictures along the way of the build. If anybody has some suggestions about a nice contrasting wood for the drawer front please let me know. Thanks.
