Veneered Credenza

To build the credenza on page 22, you'll need several hardware items. The drawer slides (02K36.18), inset hinges (00B15.24), and overlay hinges (00B15.20) were all purchased from Lee Valley. The spoonstyle shelf supports (30437) came from Rockler. And the oil rubbed door and drawer pulls (C8623) were ordered from Rejuvenation.

The smoked glass used for the windows in the doors was purchased at a local glass shop. Smoked glass is available in a couple different shades. We used a darker shade.

One of the most striking features of the credenza is the Douglas fir veneer. For this project, we used a man-made, "reconstituted" veneer product from Certainly Wood. It's available in large sheets, making it the perfect choice for this project.

For the finish, we applied a coat of General Finishes' Seala-Cell and then sprayed on two coats of lacquer.
