Ebony is nearing completion!!!!

DSCF5099DSCF5101So, poly acrylic, over black, over mahogany is challenging!!!! First came coats of shellac, so the tannins in the mahogany could not bleed through. Then came the 3 coats of black paint…black, for me is the hardest color. It would seem that it would cover the best, but it shows EVERY flaw!! Three plus coats of poly on most of the buffet, but more on top. That is probably the MOST challenging, trying to blend so that is looks as good as possible. I need to finish up the drawers, shelves and doors, but I am closing in on getting it done.
