Please check out Part 1 and Part 2 of this series to see how I designed and made this table.

After the table was stained, I first put vaseline in spots on the table base and legs. Then I painted with white paint on top, in a bit of a rough way, not being concerned about covering every bit of wood. The vaseline stops the paint from getting through to the wood. Once the paint is dry, I just rub away the vaseline and the stain shows in those parts.

Here is the underside of the table with the Z clips that I often use. These clips are essential to allow for wood movement in the top:

Here’s a couple views of the finished clock table:
