Man those tables look great, nothing like the feeling of “I got to build that” and it certainly beats ye old furniture store when folks say wow I love those end tables, where did you get those…

The finish pops on the cherry, great work

Thanks gang. That OCS #225 stain has become my favorite for cherry and maple. It really makes the grain stand out.

This is a truly beautiful project. I seldom work with cherry because of staining problems I encounter. I have never tried this combination of stain and Dainish oil. Thanks for the tip, very nice indeed.

Excellent tables.Style and beauty are both distinctive features that are found in a well-made cherry end table.Furniture makers and craftsmen have used cherry wood for hundreds of years and antique stores offer many one original and unusual items that are constructed entirely from this lovely hardwood. One of the reasons that so many consumers love the look of cherry is because of the depth of the coloring.
