This was the first thing I will ever be paid for (hopefully if she likes it). It is 6 feet tall 2 feet wide. Finish is rust oleum dark walnut, polyurathane, and Danish oil on the maple and oak dowels. I used Rick Peckovich’s method for the poly where you flood it then wipe it back, put it on with 400wet dry sand paper, then 2 more light coats, followed by finishing wax. The finish came out like glass. The dowels didn’t need to be there but it helped to hold the maple dadoed into the birch ply, and I thought that it pulled the colors together. Hope you like it.
