    Walnut is stubborn. It took a long time to flatten the veneer with SuperSoft. I was afraid to iron it because it was starting to split apart so I had to wait it out & let the enzymes do the work.

    Finished w/ boiled linseed oil. Clear coating is way too intense & I don't have the spray gun nor the booth. Others here have had success w clear coating. Not me. I suck at it.

    I know what you're going to say: the little square doesnt match the grain. It's 2cm off which is annoying but I made a mistake. It's not a showstopper.
