Made this buffet style cabinet for my wife. Added a removable hutch style graduated shelf on top. I thought I was being smart using aspen to build this cabinet. Unfortunately, I discovered when I went to finish it with stain, that the wood fibers are so dense that the stain would not penetrate. When I rubbed it on, it would rub right back off without coloring the wood. I finally used a semi-transparent paint/stain to achieve the desired color. All in all, it finally turned out ok. In retrospect, there are several things that I would have done differently. Pardon all the stuff that has accumulated on it. I didn’t want to take all of that off in order to take the pics!!
