This is an occasional table made for a friend from cherry cut from her grandfathers farm about 50 years ago.
It has tapered legs and a tapered edge on the top.
It has no stain at all. It is the natural color of the cherry. It was finished with three coats of lacquer sanding sealer and two coats of Sherwin Williams Dull Rubbed Effect lacquer finish. After the sanding sealer was good and dry, I wet sanded it with 180 grit then sprayed on the finish.
The drawer has poplar sides and a birch plywood bottom.
Turned out nice and made the lady very happy. That’s what I wanted.
Notice the radiance of the cherry on pictures number 1 and three. I love it!
-- God makes the wood beautiful--I simply rearrange it to make it more useful, hopefully.
