Just started a couple of years ago with wood working. This is my latest project, a cherry dresser. I am finding out that finishing is an art in itself that I have alot to learn.

Very nice. Looks like you’ve got the cherry finishing procedure down. What did you use on it? Thanks for the post.

I used a combination of minwax sedona red and a cherry stain. With old Masters super varnish. Next time I would like to try a Laquer finish, but I am not sure how hard that will be.

thats really nice, after the bookcase I am building I might bite off your design, are the sides cherry plywood or did you use solid lumber throughout?

The finish is great and I like the brasses. I also like the proportions.

Are you SURE you only started a couple years ago?
Fabulous project. What you’ve learned about finishing is serving you well.
Cherry is a difficult wood to finish.
