Here are pics of my work table. I figured now was good, because it is probably as clean as its going to get while the Danish oil is finishing drying.
I put the Danish oil on the ash top which has finished out at 1 1/8 thick by 71 1/2 L x 35 wide. Base is finished in BLO, and for dimensional lumber it too has some nice grain and will be a good sturdy base for this table.
It turned out larger than it looked when I ran a tape measure out from the wall deciding what size to make it!
I’ll come back later and put the plywood shelf in the bottom, and I found a small vise that I will mount on the end, but otherwise time constraints with work and so forth I will really call this project done.
This will give me a much nicer top to work on than I have made before I got the jointer and planer so that I could work with a real hardwood.
Cleaned up the floor fairly well with the shop vac, and now ready to begin my next project, a small table for our screen porch, and then a miter saw station as you can see the miter saw is parked on the old RAS, which it has replaced for crosscutting work.
Thanks for looking.
