This was my first attempt at finishing white oak and my execution should have been better but i rushed it and it clearly shows i did not meet expectations. I should have made specific complete finish examples for all stains i used. I expected to get a similar outcome from different stains and the outcome was not consistent. I will take my time and have more patience next time.

I tried to back lit the stained glass with a homemade led light panel, but it got so hot i thought i might burn down the house so i removed it. Any suggestions here would be greatly appreciated.

This was also my first attempt at Greene and Greene highlights. So I did learn or start to learn some new skills. Used a 1/4 inch shank spiral down cut router bit to cut the highlights which turned out much easier to use and with no blow out. I will use this technic again. I would strongly recommend Darrell Pert’s book and video on Greene and Greene design as i learned a great deal and different skills from each. Great resources.

VikingWay you have been busy. Nicely done. Friendly help, if you want your pictures up right just “crop” them a little on your pc first. I don’t how that works but it does.
