This is a trash can holder that i made for my aunt for a commission. its made out of sycamore, which is a wood that i would not recommend. its a challenge to work with and not overly hard but its not something i would recommend. i went over all the construction and everything on my blog.
the finish for this is a combination of wiping and spraying and is as follows.
2 coats of yellow waterbased dye (sprayed)
2 coats of dark cherry dye at a low concentration (sprayed)
5 coats of Bullseye Shellac (sprayed)
3 coats of Gel Poly
the final color is shown in the third picture. because of the lighting the first two looked brown but then i turned the flash on the camera to get the reddish color that it has.
all in all this was a fun project. the only real problem that i had was that the side panel on the right bowed a bit giving me an uneven gap in between the drawer and pull out part. the spraying was also a challenge, as it was my first sprayed piece and i think that it came out pretty good.
