Well it’s birthday time for my Granddaughter. She absolutely loves her American Girl Doll. So after seeing CanalBoatJim’s creation. I knew I had to make that bed.
It is made from Cherry with a Cherry stain thinned down to 1/3. I had used a dye for some Cherry tables I made earlier, but did not come out as good as I wanted. The stain worked better.
This was also my first attempt at spraying lacquer. I loved that – 6 coats in two hours!. I have been using a mix of poly, BLO, and Tung Oil and love how that finish comes out also. Now I have two options depending on the project.
