« Part 1: Coffee Shop Table Top Project Part 2 of SoZo Coffee Shop Table Top Series series Part 3: Completed, Delivered, Installed in Coffee Shop »

Some updated pictures after a coat of BLO.

I used a loose spline inside a dado slot to align and reinforce the frames.


And then I used my freshly sharpened jointer plane to clean up the edges.

1/8 round over router bit on the edges and corners, followed by lots of sanding. Then a coat of boiled linseed oil. I plan to add at least 3 coats of polyurethane (Minwax- floor grade gloss-see picture in previous blog entry).

They look fabulous… a lot of work but worth it in the long run… they should be very happy with these…

They look great Doug! Great contrast from the different woods. I am sure the owner is going to really appreciate these tables, they really are pro and custom. Good job!
