Had some cut-offs from some cherry wood cabinets, odd shaped and a bit boring. Found some mahogany strips taken from a packing crate, added them together with some glue. Raised the platform. i.e. higher heel, and here we are ready to dance and schmooze!!! Dirty dancing has seen nothing yet!
Finished with Lee Valley’s product – French Polish.
Enjoy!

Roman, this has a lot of nice character and it’s beautifully done.
