Beautiful piece, and that finish is wonderful. I'm going to try and remember that i have a fair amount of QS oak on my rack still that i need to find a use for.

Some of the grain patterns look like they escaped from a kaleidoscope. Sign & date those pieces !

Thanks! I've been hoarding select pieces for a while. I just finished a coffee table that matches this and will post soon. My pile is depleting fast.

Thanks! I'd love to build one of everything in their catalog if I had the time, and money of course!

Very well done.

Thanks Coop. Hope the humidity isn't too bad in Houston yet. I grew up there.

Thanks! I wish I knew who to issue credit to on the clock, its something I've found online. I've built a couple for gifts too.

Jeff Jewitt's mission oak finish technique.

I have used his techniques and they are spot on if you follow it step for step.  I used one recipe twice,  the second time was almost out of curiosity to see if his would create a consistent result.  I am sold on his steps.  He has pdf's on his site explaining everything.

Awesome piece. I'm working on a Mission nightstand right now and the Jewitt finishing schedules seem to be incredible... I'm not yet sure which color I'll be going for, but it'll be one of his recipes.

When did you do the glue-up in relation to the finishing? Did you pre-finish any of the pieces? I'm always nervous with stains/dyes, about my inability to get consistent color application when I'm working on something that's already glued up- I'm trying to figure out how much of my nightstand I can finish before doing the glue-up. If I could do the dye & stain processes, then glue-up, then all I have to do afterward is apply ARS... that might make life MUCH easier.

Beautiful job! I have to try that finish. I've seen several pieces done with it and all have been spot on.

Thanks Kurt, I'm enjoying your build as well. The only pre-finishing I did was pre-raised the grain and sanded to 180 before gluing anything, the top and drawer fronts were finished pre-assembly too. I think your plan is spot on, I  would do exactly as you mentioned.

You hit the nail on the head! It looks like it is old in new condition. Perfect! Finish, joinery, and wood selection just right. Well done.

Dang that is a beauty there Dustin! 

 

Did you build the clock too? Where are you buying your wood from around here? Your store? I have done almost 90% of my shopping at Central Hardwoods, but I dont get to handpick any wood from them.
