This was done for a client who had this family heirloom, but the base had been destroyed. I worked off of a photo she had taken of one in a museum. I used African Mahogany, Old Masters gel stain and Arm-R-Seal. The 1/4” box joints were made on the router table with the Rockler Box Joint Jig.

My mother has one just like that. Very cool to bring it back from the dead, works great making coffee grounds as well!

The piece looks very nice. I like the color, it looks very athentic. The gel stain works well with the African Mahogany. Nice job!

mmax,

May I ask the color of the Old Masters Gell Stain you used. It looks to me like it could be Early American. But I may be wrong.

Thanks,
Tony c

It is “Dark Mahogany” I only used one application and only left it on for less than 5 min.

Beautiful piece, I have had good success with gel stains, glad to see I’m not the only one, I hear so many people bashing them.
