« Part 12: Sanding a Maloof rocking chair seat Part 13 of Time lapse Woodworking series Part 14: Bar Top Finish - Bubinga and Epoxy »

This is a time lapse video of me wiping on and off my 3 part hand rubbed oil / resin finish. This is the top to a solid walnut coffee table, the top is book matched live edge curly Canadian walnut.

P.S I had fun with the music this time (-:

Beautiful finish – really brings the wood to life. And it looks so easy when you do it!

This is just the first coat, on the actual top surface I like to do 6-10 on all other surfaces I do 3. Just a quick rub down with steel wool between coats and about 24 hours dry time, although I wait 2 days after the initial coat.

Stays so silky smooth, mixture is 3 equal parts BLO, RAW Tung oil and poly urethane semi-gloss in this case

The first coat is always a blast, it’s so much fun to see your work come to life. On a side note, I really wish I could afford that much walnut to work with.

I’m lucky to have been able to build a table for some one in trade for 3 beautiful walnut trees that have been sawn and dried. I’m double lucky to have this trees have a good amount of curl and beautiful grain!

Beautiful finish, thanks for the secret recipe, I’ll try this on a future project.
Thanks for showing.
