My wife wanted a new table for beside the bed and was getting a touch annoyed that everything I was making I was giving away to the kids. We both are really into early American, colonial and shaker style.
I've never worked with cherry before but I was real happy with how easy the wood was to work with. I really love working with hardwoods.
Kind of disappointed in the finish. The top looks blotchy and I don't know why. It is finished with 3 coats of BLO and 3 coats of rub on poly. Any ideas on how I screwed it up is greatly appreciated.
Next is a hope chest for my oldest daughter then a slant front desk for my 3rd oldest daughter.
I'm thinking of mahogany for the desk. I found a place locally today that has clear 1x6 s4s 12' planks for $3.50 bf. Gotta check around to see if that's a good deal or not.
As usual comments and suggestions greatly appreciated.
