I’m in the process of making a new furniture piece made with Black Cherry and want to plan ahead. I want an in the wood finish, that will avoid the blotchies that is common with cherry.
I’m leaning towards shellac and would like any and all suggestions you may have to offer in terms of surface preparation. I want the best grain exposure and am looking for a finish schedule to promote a natural patina as it ages.
I think I have it down but I want to make sure.
