Materials and Tools:
18" x 45" pine panel
1" x 6" pine lumber
decorative wood details
small wire brads
4 puck lights
stain (Classic Cherry SW3110) (Sherwin-Williams)
1. Cut the panel to 38 inches in length using a circular saw and speed square. Draw the desired design onto tracing paper, and then transfer it onto the lumber. Cut the design out with a jigsaw using a scroll blade (drill a pilot hole in the center of the design to get it started).
2. Sand all the edges smooth and remove the dust.
3. Stain the piece and the wood detail as desired. If matching an existing piece, take a drawer front and a scrap piece of pine to the store to get help matching the furniture. Attach the wood detail with brads.
