Woodworker: Brett Shaffer

Shaffer wanted his senior-year project to be a tour de force that would inspire future students. Wanting to re-create an antique piece with elaborate carvings, he chose to build this English sideboard. Shaffer used Central American mahogany in the sideboard’s construction. It has a Minwax red mahogany stain and clear Deft lacquer finish.
