The most beautiful Ellipse bed ever
This bed is on it's way to Kelowna, B.C. It was a really nice piece of walnut, with lots of dark contrast. The finish has to be seen and felt in person. I use an oil based Urethane finish - sprayed on with 5 coats this time. It gives a soft amber cast to the grain of wood. I find it to be less "harsh" looking than standard furniture lacquer - and silky to the touch. Most furniture makers don't use this because it takes so long to cure between coats - around 6 hours. Lacquer, on the other hand, cures in minutes.
