Cherry knick-knack shelf. More of an experiment in finishing rather than building.

Looks good. Were you happy with the finish you chose?

Well? What was your finishing recipe? No secrets around here.

I am happy with the finish. I pretty much finished all the pieces before assembly (all the interiour slats were cut to be pressure-fit together). 2 coats of a cherry stain; it’s not as dark as I would normally prefer, but it does make the grain really stand out nicely. Light sand between coats. Finished with only 2 coats of a wipe on tung oil – fine steel wool sanding between. It really helped just having the thing in pieces to finish it – no stain bunching or running from corners… I let the final coat cure for 4 days before putting it together and hanging it. Thanks for looking!

It’s a nice clean build and very attractive.
