The HB Tansu carcass is complete and finished. Today I fitted and installed the drawer guides. A simple matter of cutting and planing to fit then just glue them into place. I then cut off the protruding tenon stubs left from yesterdays glue-up. A little cleanup with a plane followed by, dare I say it, sandpaper. I was then ready to move on to finishing.
I masked off the interior bits that I didn’t want finish on. From there I applied the Briwax following the same procedure that I outlined in my previous post. Did the finish turn out the way that I had planned? Nope. But I do like how it looks. Sort of has a lived-in feeling to it. Once the drawers, doors and black hardware are installed, I think it will look pretty good.
This finishing process is a first with me. If its not too much trouble, I would like to hear your thoughts on how this process looks. Don’t hold back, let me have it. 🙂
