Thank you for the nice comments. I can try to adjust the settings on my camera (however, it is old, I have tried to put my money towards woodworking tools instead).

Nice job. I just use the zoom feature to blow up the size of the picture.

I used General Finishes water based stain. The color was “Black Cherry”. Then used a Miniwax wipe on poly for the top coat. The desk received 4 coats of the wipe on poly, the top of the desk received 6 or 7 coats, I can’t remember.

This is a really nice piece. I’d be awfully proud if I could pull that off.
