Armoire, ready to disassemble

Well it's time to disassemble it, and bring it upstairs. I just hope it goes back together again. I did 2 coats of stain, I need to do the inside of the doors, and finish doing the inside too. I guess it's technically an oil finish, not just a stain, it's called Watco Danish Oil. The colour is medium walnut, it's hard to tell from the photos what colour it is, especially with the fluorescent light. I'll do that upstairs, then shellac it too. I still have to do the shelves inside, and the rod to hang clothes on. I don't really have enough room to work in my shop, so I'm going to finish it upstairs. I had a little bit of problem putting the knobs on, the screws were too long, so I had to cut them. I need a small vice for doing this kind of thing that should be easy. The knobs are from Lee Valley, and suit the Stickley style of the cabinet, they're a mission style. I'll take more photos once it's done and in place.
