Reader Showcase: Kileys Benchwright Buffet

01.28.14

This is the buffet I built using the plans from this site. I did change the layout somewhat but I think it came out great. Thanks to Rayan for the plans..

I built this for my girlfriend, seems like I'm building a lot for her lately. She wanted this for storage of her fine china and crystal. I hope everyone likes it.

Estimated Cost 

I estimate the cost around $250.00

Length of Time 

Gosh time just slips away when building but if i had to guess I would say 40 hours total, especially with paint.

Modifications 

The only mod I made is that the doors where not inset like the plans called for.

Lumber Used 

Birch plywood and Poplar drawer fronts.

Finishing Technique 

5 coats total- 1 primer and 4 top coats. The paint is navy blue acrylic latex.
