As you can probably tell, the varnish is still drying. This is more a practice project than anything else, to try my hand at, uhhh… what’s the word for layering or pin striping wood? Anyway, that’s what I was practicing on this one. The diamond applique was an after thought, because the sides looked like they needed a final touch. It’s on both sides. There are a lot of flaws on this, which I shamelessly hid when I took the photo. If I turn it the other direction you would see a couple of glue joints that didn’t quite seal, and one inside joint that didn’t quite line up. Also, I should have sanded it a bit finer, as it has quite a few swirl marks from the RO sander. Does anybody know what I can do to minimize the patchyness on the cherry? Or is that just the nature of cherry? Anyway, thanks for looking.
Oh, one last thing… I’m running out of wenge so I used panga-panga for a couple of parts. Can you tell which parts? :)
