I've been dealing with the aftermath of two fallen trees and a flooded basement. I have insurance adjusters, contractors, tree services and a bunch of other people to meet, cajole, direct and investigate. However I did get a chance to get two warehouse carts ready for the August sales. I stained these with a dark red mahogany and then amber shellac. They came out darker than the golden oak that I used on the first cart that went into the shop.
