Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Anybody ‘popped a CHERRY’ lately?
I am refinishing a cherry harvest table that has been in my family for over 80 years, and I want to make sure I do it ‘right.’ Before starting this (my first) refinishing project, I researched the process online (I even asked a few of my refurb-experienced friends for pointers)… Well, so far I’ve finished 3 rounds of Formby’s Refinisher / scraping / light sanding which appears to have removed all of the poly and original stain. However, now that I see the natural color of the cherry wood, I have some concern that the dark walnut stain I will be applying (to match our new dining chairs) will not be rich enough to hide the redness. I have discovered two potential solutions: 1) Peroxide (to remove natural wood pigmentation), 2) Industrial-grade Bleach (to remove penetrating stain residue). No matter how hard I squint at the wood, I can’t tell if this is a ‘nature’ or ‘nurture’ issue. And, who knows, maybe the stain will cover it right up. Any suggestions?
