Boy I love working with cherry. Not too hard, not too soft, doesn’t chip out much. Creates much smoother grain with router bits compared to oak which I am used to working with and is chippy.
I’ve got 4 doors up and 4 more in the hopper (ready to glue together). I decided on a thinner, svelter look to these doors. I have three raised panel bits, ogee, curve, and straight. I used the straight raised panel bit on these.
I love the grain of unstained cherry. This is just 3 coats of water based polly, sprayed on with sanding between coats. The panels sometimes have sapwood in them and it’s lighter…Nice.
