This is my third woodshop project and the first one that involved a finish beyond tung oil.
It’s a Limbert inspired coffee table with a Stickley finish based on a model I found on the Internet. The table top is QS red oak and the legs are plain saw red oak. I cut the top using a router table. Originally I wanted the holes in the cross beams to be square but it was far easier to make them round.
For the finish, I started by trying to fill the pores with Danish Oil. I think this worked OK, but not perfect. Next, I sanded back to bare wood and applied yellow amber Transtint covered with General Finishes antique walnut, followed by three coats of Arm-R-Seal.
This is my first post on LJ so I apologize in advance for any errors.
