Did this one as a raffle giveaway and won it back.  Ain't I good?

In a while, Chet.

Nice Work - - - - did you etch the glass?

The treatment that you gave to that oak is "perfect" - - IMHO

Yep, I etched that one, using an acid etch compound.  Yep, BR, that's the one I was questioning about earlier.  Minor mistake and all,I'm pretty proud of it.  You guys know how much I like my walnut, right?  Well, for this I used a "Dark Walnut" stain.  I honestly could not believe how well that red oak took it.  Made it look like an "aged" oak. 

 

In a while, Chet.
