    Smile Finshed Kitchen Dresser

    Hi all,

    I thought that I would share with my latest completed project, the top half of a kitchen dresser, I finished the cupboard and draws about a year ago.

    I have been making this down in the workshop for some time now.

    It is made out of old floor boards and lining boards that I brought from a demo yard, All I really done was give them a quick sand, as to leave the worn look, a few staples and nail holes as well as nails!

    I have seen a couple of threads regarding using Oregon for furniture making, a lot of this dresser is made from old Oregon as you can see, I think it seems to work with the floor boards?

    The glass shelfs are 6mm thick with polished edges, the glass in the doors are 25mm bevelled edge. The glass was the most expensive cost to this project, you can get the boards really cheap.


    The dresser is finished off with tung oil, I sprayed it, not sure if you should spray tung oil?

    <O

    Cheers

    Very nice piece

    I love the fact that in the second picture, you have a Festo drill sitting next to a GMC. A bit like beauty and the beast!!!!!

    Lovely piece, in my favourite style too!

    As for spraying tung, well... why not? It's your gun, you have to clean it.
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Very nice piece. Oregon looks great. A nice spot for the ipod

    Very nice Baltic.

    Nice that you are able to get good use out of the old floor boards. Love the models. Are they kits? While looking for a Pic of a flywheel and governor, I found a web sight of a guy that build is all from blanks stock. soory I looked for it but cant find the link.

    Hmm...how come the Festo's got the extra handle at the front? Doesn't it get in the way?

    VERY nice work, Baltic! I'll bet your wife loves it. Did you set up display lighting inside?

    Cheers,

    Looks awesome. I love recycled timbers - this cabinet looks great. The tung oil finish is a good choice too, if you get a small scratch in it, you can easily rub some more into the scratch and it looks like new again.

    Cheers

    Top effort there, Baltic.

    Well made, well finished, very much admired.

    Also great to see re-cycled timber being used.

    Nice shop too by the way.

    Thanks for all the nice comments,

    Gazaly, yes there is a bit of contrast with the cordless drills, love them both! The GMC at 1/7 the price is fantastic, I brought it at the Melb W/Show a couple of years ago.


    Zenwood, modern technology and young children cost a fortune, (Ipod and sound dock), I blame the kids anyway! I think you know what I mean? The extra handle on the front of the Festo drill is actually the battery, the unit is very compact and comes with a detachable drill heads that can do all types of wonderful things and get you into all parts of a cabinet, hardly used any of the extra features!, believe me the CMC is great!

    Junkboy 999,

    The steamers are all brought models from Germany, yes one day I would like to machine up a model kit ?

    Neil, the glass in the cabinet doors is 6 mm thick, with a 25 mm bevelled edge.

    Jill,

    The cook gave me a big hug

    Cheers

    Yeah, I think I do. I bought two of the teeny Ipods for the two female house members: stopped all conversation dead! Aahhh, peace and quiet at last! Actually, my crappy CD player in the shed is starting to show some 'character': skipping tracks, introducting random silence, etc. I'd love an Ipod and sound station in the shed, but it could be expensive, and I'm not sure about the dust.
    believe me the CMC is great!
    so the Festo was a bit of a waste of $s?
