I don't have a great deal of experience with sycamore. I was very happy with the quarter sawn sycamore I used on this jewelry box.  It was pretty easy to machine and finish... Pretty similar to cherry or soft maple.

Just finish this little 19" deep x 36" wide x 25" tall desk for a friends little daughter. Christmas present. Made from 1/4 sawn Sycamore. Just a plain country style is what she wanted. Only thing is, she is going to paint it white. bg

Painting something like that would be a shame. Maybe you could put a coat of tung oil on it or something paint friendly to bring out the grain and maybe she'll change her mind.

Jake, her bedroom has white furniture, so I an sure she will stick with the white. I had built them a large intertwinement center last winter. She was going to paint it until she saw that it was out of red oak. Then she stained it instead. bg

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!   Here I was admiring the detail into that table when suddenly it was like one of those stupid e-mails where you are staring really close at your monitor to find some tiny detail when out of nowhere some stupid zombie thing jumps out and blasts your speakers to scare the daylights out of you.
