This was a quick project for my dad, a cherry, two-tiered stand. These are some less than official pictures that don’t completely show the elevation of the second tier, which is propped up on 4 – 3/8’’ dowels. This creates a less heavy design which won’t block the view of larger objects behind it. Despite looking like very little material, the overall construction is a very rigid design. The 2nd tier is also roughly 1/2’’ smaller in the sides and back curve dimensions, giving better vertical continuity with the edge profile. Finish is simple arm r seal followed by some high-grit paper and some wax. This is the first project that I completely finished before assembly, which makes some aspects a lot easier, but made me a bit nervous for such a simple glue-up. For such a simple project, I am for some reason very fond of this one in particular. On a side not, do people find that most cherry has a strange grain that gives an almost hologram-like figure (pic 2 is most pronounced), or is this unique to the pieces I have (I have heard cherry is difficult to stain, perhaps this is why?). Thanks for looking, all comments/criticisms/critiques are appreciated.
