2nd Desk Nearing Completion
I made progress this weekend toward finishing the 2nd desk. I decided to do the 2nd desk with a different finish than the first one, since I was disappointed with how dark the first desk turned out. I like the finish on the first desk, but it is too dark to really appreciate all of the ebony accents in the desk.
For the 2nd desk, I decided to try tinting General Finishes oil-based Arm-R-Seal with a General Finishes oil-based stain. I used 0.75 ounce of GF "warm cherry" to one quart of Arm-R-Seal. So far, I am VERY pleased with the results.
Two coats are complete and a few more to go. Pictures coming soon.
Oh, I almost forgot, the drawers for the first desk are now done and installed also, so the 1st desk is now fully complete.
