My sister asked me months ago to build her a hanging airplane she found on Crate & Barrel’s website that they no longer sell (Red Plane). That was the only direction I was given by my sister, wood selection, finish and actual shape of the plane was left up to me.
I had some aromatic cedar in my shop already, and thought it would look really good with all the different colors in the wood, esp. for a babies room.
Originally I decided to finished it with General Finished Pre-Cat water based poly, but my buddy Drew over at Rock-n H Woodshop told me to try a couple coats of tung oil, then finish it off with half tung oil/poly brew.
Here’s a short VIDEO on my Youtube channel.
Hope you enjoy!
