i picked up some really nice cherry today. enough to finish putting together the coffee table for the fair.
this weekend looks like its going to be nice out. i hope to get the poster frames sanded, and the finishing of them started. that, and the parts for the coffee table too.
i'm pretty sure of how i'm going to finish both the table and the foot stool. i'm working with some samples of the cherry, and definitely going to start with boiled linseed oil (not wanting to run up against the coc, some might think blo could be offensive ), and topped off with coats of clear or amber shellac, or poly. can't wait to see the results.
naturally, there will be pictures of all the fun!
on another front, my wife asked me what i wanted for my birthday (a month and a half from now), and we went looking on craigslist, and i may be getting a planer, nicely wrapped, with a bow on top.
