Well I finished it the day after New Years and I’ve been cleaning up the shop since.
I’m convinced my blotchfree staining works, I know I could of made darker by giving it an extra coat that’s why you should never work at night. Even though in the photo it appears to have some blotching it actually doesn’t, for some reason the camera doesn’t give it justice and this one I took with my iPad as it’s closer in resemblance to what I can see with the naked eye.
This was a fun project and I would like to do another one again.
Btw I made this post via my iPad it took a better photo than my over rated and overly expensive camera which I’m still paying off. Viewing it on the iPad and then viewing it on my computer screen I’m getting looks. You just can’t win with technology.
