Beautiful, indeed! Hard to believe that’s pine. Did you stain it?

Docspencer, I did everything myself. I designed , fabricated , and hand finished it.

Cherry stain on the top and Ebony on the bottom. I have a process that eliminates almost all the splotchi-ness that can occor in pine.

I’m sure a lot of people would be interested in your process for eliminating splotchiness. Can you explain it?

A couple of finishing process steps that help eliminate splotchiness in pine or other similar hardness of woods:
A# Sand with no finer than 120grit sandpaper
B# Wet the wood and allow to dry before applying stain. Opens grain and removes impacted dust in grain.
C# Do not use Minwax. I use to use this product faithfully.
D# Use water based poly over a oil base stain. Solvents in oil based poly can remove and dissolve coverage of the stain.
E# Only use one coat of stain and let dry for 3X times the recommended time to assure the dry time. Multiple coats of stain are not nescessary and sometimes will re-wet the prior coats and remove stain and make splotchy.
