|This page continues the desk tambour thingy project. There it is closed! After a 3rd ( or was it 4th ) coat of Varathane, she's lookin' pretty good. Hard to believe that tambour was off of old, de-commissioned desks. Some of the slats have what appears to be burns, but could just as easily be mold too. After a sand and re-stain, it looks like new again.|
|The end bookshelf was made as a face
frame, then pressed into place as it was tight. Some silicone set on the
inside edge will stop it from creaking and rubbing against the bulkhead
there. Notice the 3/8" inset. That will be to seat the shelf top
into. The routed in strips are for a sliding gate so books don't fall
I also mananged to get the little round door together. Between the frames is some 1/16" marine grade teak ply. ( From my "purchasing materials for model boat building that I never got around to doing because we started building a real one" days!) The edges don't show it as I had to keep the 3/8" matched with the inset on the frame. This will make the door come in flush, I hope.
Gena has been away from the boat for a while now. The boat is probably cursing the house for all the attention it has stolen from her! Photos below show Gena brushing up on her ..uh .. brushing up.
8 hours: Continued on desk
