That’s coming together quite nicely.

A cabinet to be proud of.

Nice work.
Now to pick your brain a little. Do you normlly like to use two coats of stain, or just on this project? I stain all of my projects, but have never used two coats. I often find that with the oil based stain I use, a second coat doesn’t actually change the color much.

I have done 1 coat before, but this project is ash frame with oak veneer very hard to get the ash as dark as the oak. The fellow I am building it for wanted to use up some ash he cut in his bush a few years ago. I would have rather made it from kiln dried oak. Some oak veneer pieces came out lighter, so a second coat to try and get them all the same.
