A friend asked me to make a wine rack out of some sycamore lumber he had. Never used Sycamore so I said I would try. Pretty easy to work with, but trying to get a nice color for the finish was not easy. Ended up using some transtint dye, then boiled linseed oil, and finally 3 coats of waterlox on the cabinet, and 4 coats on the top.
Still the wood was a little fuzzy and hard to get a really smooth finish. If I do another in this wood, I will take more time sanding and go to a higher grit than 180.
Picked out some pieces with unusual grain for the top and drawer and added a little walnut inlay to the drawer.
