Been working on this since Nov last year. It’s been an on and off thing.
The construction is solid with mitered corners. Lid is curly cherry with padauk.
All brass hardware.
Cedar lined.

85 lbs

Thanks for looking.

I love the finish on this one. I saw in another forum that you just used Arm-R-Seal. Which one did you use? Is this the Arm-R-Seal Topcoat? Satin or Gloss? Also, did you need to condition the wood beforehand? I know cherry can get quite blotchy. Thanks Russell

Michaelonthego. It’s been a while. This is cherry flooring and I think it’s sanded to about 600g and it only has top coat on it. I may have used an oil on it first, just cant remember.
I have this in my living room and its darkened nicely.
