These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

Still working on this.

That's a ton of work. It's looking beautiful so far.

Well this is uh... the fourth section Iv'e done. So far I've done both sides of the case, and the two small doors. I'm going to be working on the large drawer front next, and then do the front and back (easy- just needs some stain) before tackling the top.

After that? who knows how many coats of finish this thing will need. I still haven't decided what I'm finishing it *WITH*. I have a ton of lacquer here, but that means dealing with lacquer thinner, too. I might just use some high gloss poly. I could also French polish it, but that seriously sounds like a pain in the ass. More than that though I am looking to avoid an alcohol based finish because the cabinet part on top will hold alcohol. I don't want a spilled drink to ruin the finish

Details of the whole project are over at my design blog- click the logo in the sidebar to get there.

That's more than a ton of work! Finishing always seems to come down to the least painful in a host of pain in the ass choices. I'll check out your design blog.

Wow, it's looking amazing. I had no idea how it was going to turn out.

ETA: Just like your own solar system.
