Nice chest Jerry. Like the finish on the pine which can be tricky at times.

Agreed, very nice. What is the finish? Tung oil?

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Moose, I used minwax antique walnut polyshades. I have used polyshades on 2 projects and the color is no where close to the advertised samples. Much lighter than advertised. jerry

How did you find the polyshades to work with? I’ve heard both good and bad reports….

Caydel, I found the polyshades not to be true to the sample on display. i finished an end table with bombay mahogany on white oak and the color wasn’t even close. much lighter than advertised. same result when using antique walnut on the pine chest. the color didn’t darken with more coats either. maybe the polyurethane seals it? i wouldn’t use it again.
