Ash stained Golden Pecan (Minwax). I tried oak, but kept busting off the tips in the arches, so used ash and found it to be not as brittle to use. Arches cut out using a band saw, and filed until even. No templates used.
Ash is not easy to stain (consistently). Liked the pecan better—golden oak turned out a dull gray.
Glass is a pressed leaf design (special order) located by a local art glass dealer. The bin pulls are authentic Victorian brass from a salvage place north of Indianapolis.
Good project. Will probably build more to showcase more glass.
