« Part 11: It's been a while--gluing up and finishing Part 12 of Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning series no next part

After about 6 coats of Arm-R-Seal (I use gloss for the first few coats because it is easier to deal with, then satin at the end), it’s looking pretty good. I knocked off the rough spots between coats, and thinned it a bit for the last couple of coats. I’m very pleased with the color and the finish. Arm-R-Seal is a funny finish, because you have to be patient through the first couple of coats before it starts to look good. Here are a few pics.

I think it turned out GREAT! I am going to do one and change the shelf/leg design a bit. Hope mine comes out as nice as yours.

Thanks, tons. I am very happy with it. We rounded the one end of the shelf to fit with the angled cherry leg edge. Good luck.

Thanks Mike and Tim. I really enjoyed this one. Now for the drive to Chattanooga to deliver it!
