This is my first big job. i finished it last week. since i have had several requests for custom comissions. now i spend time in my shop just as i did before except i am making money while i have fun. it is truly a dream come true.
this is a cherry entertainment center with raised panel doors. it is still unfinished. i was saposed to do the finish until i found out what it was that he wanted. a dark dark red/brown fake looking finish with a thick layer of glass like laquer. he should have just done it in a maple or something a little less expensive but some costumers just dont understand the naturaul beauty of the wood. anyways i told him i was uncomfortable aplying the finish he was after. i am by no means a proffesional finisher and i could use allot of help in that field. i found him someone else to do the finish. i got home and emediatly sighned up for a finishing class. i start that next month and i hope i can learn from it.
