Here are the final pics of this finished project all ready for pick up later today. Just like modelling, with wood work you always learn and discover new tricks to make your projects that much better. This time I found a small but effective way to apply a stain to virtually eliminate streaking and allow a much faster application time. On a large piece like this the surface area is proportional and leaves a lot of room for things to go wrong. Being a hard wood and of only 20mm thickness there were no issues with twisting as I would generally experience with Pine of the same thickness.
