    Looks awesome without the finish. Excellent!

    Very nice, I can’t imagine how impressive and deep all that figure will look once you’ve got a finish on (especially given how wood always looks better in person than photos ever convey.)

    Beautiful, great proportions and a nice fit! What’s the plan for finishing? I’d be inclined to go with a coat or two of oil topped with some amber shellac, but you could still go for the pink and purple milk paint ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh, I’ve had a ton of advice on finish .. although no one has recommended pink and purple milk paint (eww boy!).

      I was going to do marine varnish but decided it was over kill for my out of the rain and sunshine spot on the porch. Teak oil will be the finish.
