« Part 8: Designing and Installing the Butterfly Leaf Part 9 of Butterfly Dining Table series no next part

In the last episode of this build, I start by applying a dye to help keep the walnut looking dark over the years. I also have to do some special prep work so I don’t dye the maple inlay around the top. When that is ready, I then put on the final finish which is a wiping poly. I move the table into my dining room, and then perform the final assembly. Done!

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Guy, what transtint dye did you use on the table? I just may have to try on mine and compare to the Danish Oil I normally use. Thanks.

The table looks awesome. The dye added just enough color; not too dark. The folding leaf is superb.

It is dark walnut mixed into denatured alcohol. I just crept up on it very slowly until I got the color just right. I still have quite a bit left, and saving it for the buffet I am going to have to build to match.
