Yes, it’s kind of arts and crafts. I’ve grown to like that style for it’s simplicity and joinery. Very observant, yes the finish is Danish Oil, one of my favorites for cherry and walnut. I’ve also started to use “Sam Maloof Poly/oil” finish I find easy and very nice looking. I get the cherry from some land we have that is half pine tree farm and half mixed hardwood. Fortunately there is a LOT of cherry on it so I cut it and have it rough sawn and dried at a local sawyer. I discovered recently that you don’t cut cherry trees that are leaning over or on a hillside. The rough wood twists like the dickens as it dries. I end up making lots of little projects with it…lol. Thanks for all the nice feedback!
