I’m building an armoire/stereo cabinet. I’m just now prepping the boards for glue-up and assembly. The wood I’m using is chechen. The problem is that there is a lot of stress cracks in the would I didn’t see a month ago when I bought the wood as s2s.
I don’t mind the few splits, there not large. I’m now thinking I should use gorilla glue for the panel assembly. My question is is there a finish issue with this material?
And is there anyone with a favorite finish technique. My friend said, after I planed and surfaced all 80bf, “My favorite finish that I’d use on this chechen is called- Take it back and get some good wood.” I think he’s a wood bigot.
Anyway whatch ya-all thin.
