I used a dark cherry stain. I wanted sort of an antique effect and the birch cooperated.
I a couple of spots to touch up then put the finish on.
I re cut the insert, just didn't like the first one. I made need to darken the insert just a tad (opinions)
Sorry for the bad pics

Hi Rob,
Ofcourse the pictures may cause to mistake things but it may be better to sand it very lightly without putting much preassure on the sand paper.Very light and gentle touches before applying the finish.
Overall it is very nice.

Lookin good so far. I think I'd darken it a little for contrast.

That's what I was thinking. The BB too light for the frame.

Yup, Needs a little touch with a 400 grit. Then a couple coats of acrylic or something.
