its been a long time since i posted about the armoire and dresser that i have been commissioned to build.we have been looking all over for good walnut and have not really been able to find any. upon contacting the specialty dealers we found that they were way out of our price range. so after my recent success in dying the poplar we are thinking that we are just going to settle for poplar and some good finishing techniques. won’t take away anything from the piece. i’m gonna have to...
