I liked the bakers rack, but the boards were a little too cherry color and the finish was pealing on a couple spots.
The belt sander I finally got really came in handy for stripping off the old finish.
The light wood will look much nicer than the cherry finish for our kitchen.
Ready to be sealed with varnish.
I am running out of room in the dining area. Better finish up some projects before getting many more started, but it makes it easier to varnish a bunch of pieces at once.
After the second coat of varnish is dry, everything is back in place.
The color makes a nice transition from the oak kitchen cupboards to the lighter wood of the fish tank and soji screen cupboards.
All done and looking good.
