Lingerie Cabinet - Finish Samples and Drawers Episode 7

Back again for another webisode of Building a Contemporary Lingerie Cabinet.

Of course we start with taking care of the buisness of woodworking then proceed to make color samples for the finish on our piece. We'll go through the process of finding a finish we like, beginning with shellac, and even enter the realm of testing for a custom finish.

From Finish Samples we move to edging the drawers, where we'll address design elements and wood selection that will aid in finishing efficiencies.

The case takes a life on this webisode......ENJOY!!!!!

Hi Neil,

First of all I'd like to congratulate you for the great content on your blog.

I've downloaded the QuickTime file but I get an error opening it: "Error -37: a bad filename or volume name was encountered".

It's the first time, all the other videos play fine. Did anyone else report this error?

Neil -

Awesome job as always! Thank you. The cabinet is going to be beautiful. I really like the explanation of how you developed the finish schedule. The grain is wonderful but still fine and subtle. I also appreciated the concept of cutting all the end edge banding from the same piece of stock - again focuing on the design elements and shop efficiency. Thank you for aiming this at the small shop guys!

Very nice work. An absolutely beautiful piece of furniture! Thanks for talking about the shop process and the acute level of detail you demonstrate in the process beyond machine technique. I really enjoy the discussion of treating the piece abstractly and constantly reminding us that we have to keep the end result in mind as we progress through the steps.

Again, thanks for the great content, I look forward to the shows.

Great work Neil! You are inspiring to a new woodworker. Keep it up.

P.S. (to luis)I had the same Quicktime error. Change the filename of the saved file and it works.

hi neil

you have some excellent blog posts!

thanks for the attention to detail which you show. your love for woodworking is encouraging to me in that i have only started woodworking a few years back and with each of your episodes i gain more insight. i appreciate you explaining everything it helps a lot :)

i have read about 'popping' the grain but why is the term 'cut' used and not 'coat' like with paint?

again excellent job!!

take care,
