    black cherry

    I found a box of cherry on the steps a few days ago. I made this out of a chunk of it. Black cigar with 15 coats of thin ca. Sanded out to 12000mm and rubbed out with automotive rubbing compound.

    Very nicely done Dale!
    Excellent fit and finish.
    The Black plating really sets off the timber.
