Making a cart for my nail tech step daughter. Edge glued the cherry with biscuits. Machined dovetail drawers. Made the front and back identical, but drawer only opens one way.

Had a great time working with cherry. First time using it, but when it come time to finishing… Man it’s not very forgiving. Every small nick, scrap and dent showed up. I don’t mind the wood showing a little character, but not the woodworking. Oh well, it was stained dark to match other existing furniture so it was’t too bad.

All in all I’m please how it came out. Thanks for looking.

Nice job the Cherry Rolling Cart. Cherry is a difficult wood to stain I has a tendency to blotch when stained. A coat of stain control would help with that. All in all you project looks good!

Outstanding! Looks super…. I can see stealing that basic design and upsizing it a bit. I’d probably do it with a granite top to use one of the pieces I have that would go with the wood tones.

Have your say...
