I had made two tall tables using the half dowels and I thought it would be great to match. I’m so please with the result. I used black Japan stain to get the colour I was after and finished with a few coats of clear satin. The top is Mdf with a faux marble finish, hopefully one day I can replace with real marble

Re: Tv Cabinet

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Kn140964. It's sensational to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your amazing project.

I love the design you've gone with, and it's wonderful to see you build the whole unit yourself. I trust our members will also be exceptionally interested in the faux marble finish on the MDF. Please tell us more, and could you post a couple of closeup pics? It's looking particularly impressive, and I'd be thrilled to learn more.


Many thanks for sharing, and we look forward to seeing what other fabulous projects you contribute to the community.
