Here’s a cherry stand I made for the mother-in-law. She wanted something to set on and put her shoes on when she came in from outside. I like the looks of cherry, but it was a challenge to work with. Burning and not very forgiving on little errors. I did get to try a new finish technic that I read about here. BLO then next day brush on shellac. I’ve always tried to let the BLO dry for a week or so, but this way worked great too. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the kind words. This was a fun project. Oaker, I did the beading with my new (old) Stanley 45 combination plane. Thanks again.
