« Part 10: Think we're ready to move on Part 11 of Corner Inlay Table series Part 12: Almost there...The big reveal! »

The stain recipe is going on. So far, so good. I think I’ll like the way it turns out.

And yes, it’s more work than most will think poplar is worth. That’s ok.

HOWEVER: I got greedy, and I’m paying the price for it.

I tried to pull the tape up with the stain still wet. In some places, it pulled the stain in a string onto the maple inlay. Not much, but some. So I stopped, will let the rest of the table set, and on the second one, I’ll just wait.

Patience, I keep small amounts of it around here, somewhere. Think I’ll stop and dig it out…

I don’t.

Wait . . . was that multiple choice?
