My latest project – another derivative/copy of a Nakashima desk/sideboard called Minguren. Unlike his, which were made with Walnut, this one is Cherry with Walnut keys. While the drawer looks different – it’s just the current state of the toning of the wood – all of it will darken to the same reddish brown most people think of Cherry wood looking like. The keys are ostensibly there to stabilize a crack in the wood, but truthfully they are there because I wanted to try my hand at them!
My first time trying a water based poly over shellac.
