Good day LJ’s, today’s post is a commission piece made from Tiger Maple, stain with a dye stain and poly satin coated finish. The main body is made with 5/8 Baltic Birch and veneered with Tiger Maple. The home made crown is Tiger Maple as well, the General Dye Stain is becoming a favorite to use due to the wonderful tones they produce this one a mixture of Espresso and Med. Brown. Thanks for viewing ….Blkcherry

Gorgeous cabinet and excellent work. You made the grain really come out with your stains.

Super nice build, great grain pop, excellent smooth finish. What did you use for the top coats?

Wow Wilson! I don’t know if you can beat tiger maple when it comes to eye appeal. This is a gorgeous piece. You can’t walk into Ikea or Home Depot and buy a medicine chest like that!

Looks fantastic, that stain really makes the figure pop on that tiger maple. Are the door panels book matched? Nice work.

Scrumptous!! Excellent job on the dye, finish, and construction. I first thought it was curly Walnut.

Wilson…..you are the maple master…..I am really impressed with the piece. Usually, I like maple au natural, but the stain gives this piece a real presence and some age. I am always jealous of your wood supply.
