I hate to stain wood, but they made me do it ! Cherry on the outside, Baltic Birch, inside, or maybe it was Finland Birch.

Angie, it was a mix of red mahogany and dark walnut. I really hate to stain, and cherry is hard to stain, well maybe not hard, you have to use a wood conditioner first.

This is really a nice piece and it looks like you’ve done a fine job on it. However, the photos are a little on the dark side.

I’m with Charles,

The shape and form of the piece caught my attention.

It turned out really pretty and well crafted. Like the design and the stain. Great job!
