    Cedar Chest

    I just finished up with this beauty. The Marquetry is painted. I had to look close it was done very well. And instead of making it a wash I decided to spend the extra hour and do the detail touch up, The customer is very pleased. She did not balk at the extra time spent either.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Thanks All, the color is almost natural , we added a little hickory to the finish just to even out the over all tone.

    Dave, a couple more weeks of doing this stuff and I think you will have it down pat. Turned out nice.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
