Witch’s Brew. Got the top on last night, and brought the table upstairs to show off a bit..
Note to self: Next table, make the splay at 5 degrees, NOT 12. Also, use a thicker, wider top with these kind of fat legs
The Boss has decreed this to be a Night stand/bedside table. She could also put one of her LARGE potted plants on it.
Table didn’t need much sanding. Took it back down to the shop tonight. Thought about just a clear coat of varnish…but with them white legs…..maybe I should “Tan” them? Found the quart can of Witch’s Brew..
Witch’s Brew? A quart can, into which I pour the last remnants of whatever can of finish had been used in the shop…stains…..varnish…BLO….Rather than a collection of almost empty cans sitting around. Stirred this evil smelly brew up…..looked a might on the red side..
had to add a couple planks acroos the bench, this table has a WIDE stance.
I started out with the table sitting on it’s top. I worked my way from the feet down to the top itself. There are white, plastic “Feet” at the end of each leg. just nailed on type on things. Point of the nail goes right where the dead center of the lathe was. I think you can see a couple under the legs.
Plan now? I will let this smelly mess dry over night, steel wool to “rub” it out. Then, maybe either a second coat of the Brew, or just a coat of gloss poly. Need to go out and get a few more brushes, too. Woodwork is done, finish is almost done…...next time I’ll post as a Project, stay tuned for that….
