I haven’t written an entry for over two weeks, the combination of being on the road (I happen to be among the select few ever to ride in a commercial jet from Montgomery AL to Columbus GA, not that either airport was scheduled in my itinerary) and attending the wedding of the couple to whom this table will be given.
Since the last entry, dry fit the whole table, decided what radius to put on the shelf on the waterfall edge (the inside of the leg is narrower than the shelf), and darkening the walnut with the method I outlined in a previous post. I’m really pleased with the way the walnut turned out.
Today I glued and clamped the table
Took off the clamps.
And put on the first coat of Arm-R-Seal gloss(still wet in the pic). The last two coats will be satin.
When it is finished, I’ll get someone who is better than me to take some final pics. It’s only the Arm-R-Seal left!
