Hi Folks
My day job continues to be silly busy at the moment – what a difference to the start of the month. One extreme to the other :)
Good news is that I have glued up the main part of the fluted table. Was slightly stressy, as glue-ups seem to be. All went well although I do have a couple of seams that didn’t close completely with glue added that DID when dry assembled. Grrr…... Still, a little sawdust and oil soon sorted that out. And talking of oil, I’ve now put on four coats! And boy does the table look good. The walnut really loves an oil finish :)
Just need to sort out the drawer and I’ll be happy.
Cheers
Phil

Phil, this is looking very nice. I’m impressed with how much our Australian Blackwood like American Black Walnut.

Great Table Philly! The side looks great, almost like it’s undulating fabric. What finish did you use, I like the difference it made from the rough stock.

Thanks Gents!
Scott, I used a product called “Chestnut Finishing Oil”. It’s a favorite of mine – easy to apply and builds up fast. It is also water resistant, too. Similar to a danish oil.
Cheers
Phil
