This was my first real piece of furniture I finished last year before I had all the elements of my shop together. I finished this with only a bandsaw, router table (cheap Porter cable one) and a planer. I got all the cherry from a friend for FREE. I saw the plans in Wood magazine and you know the feeling, “I got to build that”. This project taught me alot of joinery and finishing techniques. I played around with different stains and quickly found that minwax stain was not suitable, so it was finished with GF antique cherry dye stain, and top with minwax wiping poly.
