The dining table top has been taken out of clamps, sanded and the first coat of finish applied. The pictures show the underneath of the top ready for finishing and after finishing with two coats of lacquer and a coat of wax applied.
The upper side of the top was sanded to 240 grit and is shown after one coat of laquer.
I have reverted back to a lacquer finish because in appearance it is as good as the oil finish and it dries much faster.
The table legs have also been ganged up for laminating and clamped overnight. They are now ready for cutting to length, planing, sanding and finishing.
Tomorrow should see the table top and legs completed.
