I actually side that on purpose. I wanted the splines to be more subtle in this one. One boxes I’ve done in the past I’ve wanted to splines to be the “star”. But with the mahogany I wanted the splines to be more for strength and just play second fiddle.Splines look good in bare wood, not sure the stain/finish shows enough contrast.
My neighbor likes to do that. Takes old cabinets and tables and sturdies them up and refinishes them. I hate it. I don’t want to have to deal with sanding all the nooks and crannies. Honestly sanding is probably where I cut the most corners on the stuff I actually make lol.cool.. my old roommate Greg was a furniture refinisher, but his hobby was making fancy inlaid boxes.. all that birdseye maple, etc stuff... I probably have a dozen kicking around the house he gave me that i use for various things...
