Quarter-Sawn White Oak Display Case

Home » Blog » Woodworking » Quarter-Sawn White Oak Display Case

This mission display case will match Roseann’s mission sofa and end tables.

I used the same finish as her other mission furniture.

  • lockwood american walnut water-based dye mixed 1 lb. in 8 gals.
  • 1.5# blonde shellac (sealcoat) sanded lightly with 400
  • varathane mission brown oil-based stain as a glaze
  • 2 wiped on coats of waterlox original sealer/finish
  • 2 wiped on coats of a 50/50 mixture of waterlox sealer/finish and satin
This was the tallest project I have ever done and the garage door barely cleared it when opened.

All of the shelves are solid wood except for the bottom one. Wood movement would have been a problem since it's part of the base.

The quarter-sawn white oak I used on this project really had some nice rays.
