>Painted Bookcase

>It’s been a while since I updated this Blog, I’ve been on a site for the last few weeks fitting floors, skirting’s, and general carpentry work. I have also been doing a few jobs around the workshop, a new setting out bench, and filling the holes in the concrete(one sprained ankle too many). I will post a few pic’s of the “improvements” next time. I had to make a MDF bookcase last week, I didn’t do a wip as time was tight, but here it is finished…

It’s almost identical to one I made before Christmas, The client saw that one on my website and wanted the same, but to cover the fusebox and still be accessible. 
I have some nice fitted oak wardrobes mid week next week so I will update with that every day.

    >What type of finish? Just paint? Pigmented lacquer? Looking forward to the wardrobes next post.

    >I'm starting to push for a hand painted finish nowadays, I don't have a decent spray area for pigmented A/C for a start. One of the other pro's(senior)on woodwork uk advocates a hand painted finish for all his painted work, and for ease of repair. I'm also using the hard wax oil instead of lacquer, unless asked for.
