I glued the carvings on the new shaped front apron. I found Minwax Rosewood Gel Stain that I think is going to work. I’ve applied two coats of stain. As you can see, I need to get a couple of shades darker.

After two more applications of rosewood gel stain, I’m close. Maybe one more?

Checked it out this evening to make sure it was dry and decided to go with the shade as is. Light “sand” with a brown paper bag and applied the first coat of satin spray laquer to the rails. Probably two more and then to reconstructing the jute base for the springs, padding, etc. and finally reupholstery.
