Norm built an oval table from cherry last month and the finishing is where I need help.
He started with a mix of 3 parts cherry to 1 part walnut oil stain. Next, he used shellac to seal. Next, he used ???????????? (gel stain or glaze or ??? what the heck is glaze? Then top coat with 3 coats of wipe on poly..
It's the third step that I can't remember.. Specifically this third step would get rid of any blotchiness on the cherry. His web site doesn't go into much detail either. I think it's what's called French finishing but am probably mistaking.
I've done steps one and two and am stuck..
Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can finish this darn thing once and for all..
