Ok…I was thinking of doing some stringing or inlays on this but after talking with my wife about where we wanted to put this, I let that idea go. I wanted to keep it a bit less formal.
This series of photos are after the glue up and with one coat of Karson’s Oil/Poly blend recipe. It is still just a bit on the damp side. The top is not attached at this point. I will probably give it one more coat of the oil/poly blend then give it 3 or 4 coats of shellac and rub it out. I want to be able to repair the finish if something happens with out having to strip it.
