More Scraps

I got the other panels sanded down and oiled up today. There is a really nice variation in grain patterns. I’m trying to think if I can use this motif in other parts of the cabinet.





You need to picture the panels above trimmed out like the one below. For those not following along, this will be for the cabinets I talked about yesterday.



Oh, and the diagram in yesterday’s post is wrong. There should be 4 doors and drawers on the lower cabinets. Speaking of the lower cabinets, I also got the boards cut up to make the boxes. As I suspected there was a lot of waste on the old kitchen flooring I used. Even more than I anticipated. That stuff was in really bad shape. Over the next few days I will pull any remaining nails, plane it down a bit, and then start to glue up panels for the sides.

Greg, I love it!

Have you thought about alternating the grain direction for a checkerboard effect?

Greg said...

No, I'm not sure that would look right. Especially in this room. There is a paneled dado that runs around the room and all of the grain on those panels goes up and down.

Greg, what oil are you using on the shingles? Thanks. Tung oil?

Greg said...

It is a 50/50 mix of boiled linseed oil and turpentine.
