    Something about the look of old Nitro that modern finishes don't have, especially the low sheen ones like you used Wally. To me it gives a softer more delicate, natural look, especially if the colour is added by way of a toner rather than a stain that usually over-exaggerates the grain. In my experiences with it, I found oak has a number of very subtle textural characteristics that tend to be obliterated by a pigmented stain. But some customers like that "heavy" look, and the paying customer gets what they ask for.

    Thanks Paul -- IIRC it was a 20 sheen MLC Nitro Lac.

    Wally, what finish/sheen did you use? Looks really nice!

    Great choice for the drawer front with its figure pointing to the handle.

    I like it when it's kept not too dark and looks quite natural like this desk. Click image for larger version

    White Oak really is beautiful. It has a smell that is very distinctive when being machined.
