I made this beauty out of cherry, some really sweet grains on this cherry. I have to say this is the first project I made from cherry, so I was cautious about splotches as I wanted to “warm” up the cherry. So I used Zinsser sanding sealer, which is a shellac. I then stained everything a light cherry stain to draw the color together throughout the piece. The top was a different challenge, but I got-r-done with an epoxy resin bar top formula. All in all it looks good for what it is. This is a collaboration between three people, me, an artist, and a digital printing company. We are starting a gallery of local works as well as pitching some ideas to the likes of Walter E Smith (furniture co.) and some companies that sell to upscale hotels. I really hope this launches into something big.
