Can't understand why people would make a nice piece then try to make it look a hundred years old. If that look is what the are after, they need to use it for a hundred years. Or, just buy old furniture. Or, turn a bunch of three year old loose on it. Me, if I make something new I want it to look new.Thank you for not distressing it... that seems to be the 'in' thing out here, but I prefer it looking new.
