We built this table for some friends and the build went great!
She brought over a table leg so that we could try to compliment their existing stain colors. I used "American Walnut" when maybe I should have used "Special walnut". It turned out a little reddish and I'm worried that she wont like it. I think it's beautiful but I'm so nervous!
What do you think about the finish?

They'll love it
Don't worry, it came out beautiful and the finish looks fine! They will be happy and thankful for your efforts. Besides, the style these days isn't to be so "matchy matchy" anyway. Great job!

Thanks! They actually really
Thanks! They actually really loved it. I'm sooo relieved. Turns out her husband loves red wood stains. :) There is just something about hand built furniture. It is never perfect but it always has soul.
