A client contacted me and indicated she wanted a cherry shadow box for her husband. And she wanted it in a “dark cherry” finish. Now I’ve never been a fan of darkening cherry artificially as I like the natural beauty of cherry and prefer to let it darken naturally. But she was a paying customer and I was determined to make her happy. So I ordered some General Finished Merlot and Dark Brown Dye Stains and some Chrles Neal Blotch Control. After a little experimenting to get the color right, I settled on what I felt was the dark cherry color my client wanted. I think it came out pretty nice. I shipped it of last week and am still waiting to hear from her as it’s not scheduled to arrive for a couple more days. Thanks for looking.
