Episode #95 - Cherry Fine Art Print Bin Delivery

This project was a commission for The Clearwater Gallery in Sisters, Oregon. It was built with wild Oregon cherry I purchased from Hardwood Components, Inc . . . a local family run hardwood mill that specializes in native Oregon hardwoods. After getting some rough dimensions from the gallery, I worked out the design for the project over several evening using SketchUp.

I used my vacuum press to veneer the bottom of the shelf with rift-sawn cherry and to press the carpet covered shelf insert. Finish schedule was two coats 1/2# clear shellac to minimize blotching followed by a single coat of 1# amber shellac and 6 coats of wet sanded Original Formula Waterlox. A final buffing with two coats of clear wax finished off the project.

David,

Very nicely designed and constructed print rack. It looks right at home and the owner looks very happy with it.

Great work!

Mark -

Many thanks! It is always great to hear from The Craftsman's Path! I like what you are doing with your sculpted rocking chair. We need to carve out a moment or two to discuss design . . . !
