Was messing around and made this. Wife seen it and was like " Is that for me!?! That is sooooo neat!" So I acted like it was and now I gotta finish it lol. To funny but should I stain? Paint? Oil? Burn? I have never been one to finish other then with paint.
What do YOU think? (Wife said make it pretty)

I'm with woodnthings - I noticed glue squeeze out where the shelving meets and that will be problematic if you decide to stain. But it is a nice little build and since the wife likes it so much, reel her in. Talk to her about how you like woodworking and the possibilities if you had certain tools. Every year on our wedding anniversary, I take my wife out to eat at the Home Depot food court and after we're done eating our sausage grinders, I always offer to go into the store and buy her tools that I don't even own.
Haha I just took her to Home Depot And showed her the dewalt surface planer. " oh honey, look it does this, and then when you spin this it does this, isnt she beautifull?" I don't think she's to jazzed at the $400 price tag tho.

I tried to be gentle in the glue department, I used a tiny scrap stick and put the glue on the stick. I then applied it like I would calking. Being so light I wasn't able to really rub to remove.

Does anyone know how to do this finish?

Perfect. So if I understand this right, if I paint my wood black, let dry, paint on the jello crackle, then paint on let's say white over it. It's going to crack the white and I will see the black under paint? That would make for some cool color combos if it does work like that!
