Re: [APD] Painted tank stand
Solid mahogany comes in wide boards that are stable in terms of warpage, if
cured properly. The open grain is a nice feature of the wood, IMO, that
adds character to an otherwise plain grain. I've seen some teak veneer
furniture w/solid edging that can look good if the color and grain is
properly matched. Yeah, staining cherry is redundant. I don't think many
people have seen properly finished natural cherry. Most of what is sold as
cherry is stained sandalwood.
I had a woodworking biz for a while, but gave up on it because people won't
pay for the real thing. Heck, many don't even recognize it. A relative
'oiled' his formica woodgrain coffee table once, and didn't believe me when
I pointed out the absurdity. It was real wood to him.
