thanks gary, i might do that next time. the issue is, i hate finishing anything, sanding, painting, staining, etc. i would rather just build it and let someone else do that. but over the years, i have made several pieces from just oiled or poly finishes. i made 2 really nice walnut jewelry boxes that i ended up giving away to previous girl friends. i do have my walnut cedar lined chest and a pair of end table lamps. several wall display units.Randy, buy a cheapy size light oak stain and try it on a scrap piece before poly..I think it will make the grain jump a little more....just a suggestion...
