Sorry for my low presence recently, I've been trying to hit my Christmas deadlines. Luckily I've succeeded but it did involve at least one 24 hour stint in the workshop!

Here's some pics of some wardrobes and bookcase I've just made.

They are faced in oak with finnish birch ply interiors. Exterior finish is two coats of Chestnut finishing oil and then wax. Interior is two coats of Satin Aquacote.

Look forward to your comments (good and bad)









Cheers

Tim

Thanks Chas for the photo dupe spotting!

Splendid Tim, you definitely deserve a couple of days off now!

I like the down-lighters in the wardrobe - how did you conceal the wires?

Thanks guys

Chris

The wires run through a small channel in the top of the main wardrobe, up the back to the transformers on the top behind the coving. The client and I agreed that if something went wrong with the wires in the future then we'd replace them in a different way to avoid deconstruction. Since the lights, touch switch and transformers can all be accessed and replaced i think this is okay. (touching wood :whistle: )

Cheers

Tim

Fabulous. I have every intention of plagiarising that design for my own bedroom eventually.
