Mission Nightstand

Furnished content.

Mission NightstandEarlier I had posted a mission (arts and crafts) style sofa table that I gave a mission finish to. After liking that result, I found online plans for mission (arts and crafts) nightstands that I could give the same finish. Knowing the type of finish I wished for I made this from 1/4 sawn white oak. The flecks from this really stand out. I'm getting to really like this look and intend to complete more furniture projects with this wood and finish.This is what I went with for the finish. #1 Used TransTint dye (Medium Brown) to dye the wood. #2 Sealed it with General Finish Seal-A-Cell (Clear) #3 Applied General Finish Antique Walnut Gel Stain: It was at this point that it took the look I was seeking. #4 Applied 3 Coates of General Finish Arm-R-Seal (Satin). The finishing part is really time consuming and I was hating it at the time. There are a lot of parts to go around which makes it such a pain. Once it was done, I was happy with the result and did not think too much of all the time it took to finish.Hope you like it.

Kick the Can When I was a boy, my dad taught me a great way to re-seal a can of stain. He would place the open can on the floor with the loose lid in position on the can, …Source
