    Prob not. I think its going to be fairly dark. Waiting for stain sample coming from Ethan Allen. The customer bought 12 chairs from them and we are matching the stain. They are slow as molasses sending it to us though.

    Shame...hope it's not so dark the rays don't pop
    "customer is always right" isn't always right.
    An acquaintance who owns a retail hardwood shop delved into kitchen cabinets for the very first time....the husband LOVED a batch of highly figured Birdseye that he and I went in together for the kilning. Was supposed to be a golden honey stain....at the last minute as he was proudly showing the couple his work just prior to finishing...the wife said
    "WE decided to go with an opaque white pickle finish instead "
    So ended his cabinet career
    They were UGLY!!!
    He now specializes in beautiful wide plank flooring for his sideline

    Finally getting somewhere.. lol

    The finish is 10 degree sheen post cat lacquer - will be pretty flat/matte finish when dry.

    Last coats on tomorrow, assembly and delivery slated for Tuesday, as Monday is a stat holiday here.

    Not big pics Andrew, but looks like only the base was stained to match Ethan Allen chairs?
    LOVING the tabletop grain
    Hoping you have a straight shot for delivery into the dining room
    NICE job!!

    Deceiving the way the lighting and wood is positioned. The feet, columns and top are all stained the same and placed next to one another look the same.

    Will be a straight shot into the front entrance, right into the dining room 🙂

    NICE that you make such lightweight furniture, that just you and Joseph can deliver it Andrew.
    (Make sure Joseph lifts with his legs, not his back!")
    Good thing it's a straight shot!

    Beautiful job Andrew.
    As long as you are playing with some white oak, have you ever tried fuming it?
