Default chifferobe

Here is a chifferobe I just finished up for my aunt. Made of red oak and
stained with a mixture of General gel stain brown mahogany and georgian
cherry. As much as I hate staining and prefer a natural finish (she wanted
a dark reddish finish), the gel stain at least made the job bearable.

I still need to install a hanger rod in the right side, but otherwise it's
ready for delivery!

Eric

Agree about natural, but Aunty will love it and love you. Nice job.

Sometimes you gotta do what the end user wants. You don't want to wind up
like the old computer programming guru who, when finding his product was
not being embraced by users and told that he should have consulted with
them prior to development to find out what they needed emphatically
stated, "I don't need to consult with users to find out what users need! I
tell users what they need!"

Looks good. Good job, I'm betting that's going to make someone very happy

Normally. I agree with you about a natural finish, but when it comes to red
oak, I agree with your aunt.

Excellent job.

Hey, I resemble that remark! My day job is software development so I've
been known to do just that
