Thank You Deb.. *S*. I appreciate the kind words..I have a real passion for highly figured and deep grained woods. I would say your project is simply spectacular! Sometimes gloss finishes really don't work well on furniture but your finishing made everthing about that chest just pop! It's the kind of piece you just want to spend a long time looking at. AWESOME!
The clairo walnut is just spectacular.. no doubt..I just wish everyone could get a real
feel for how the pin knot cherry top looks. As for the finish, I'm with you.. not a big high gloss guy, often it just gives the piece a kind of plastic look. Since this is for a four year old, wild man,, it needed some protection *LOL* I think the flash gave it more of a gloss look than it actually has. I used a satin finish on everything.
