Thanks very much Alex

Teal is such a gentle colour.

Take care

Hi Ron,

The finish on the top is a South African product called Woodoc. I sealed the top all all round with 5 coats of nitrocellulose sanding sealer and the 6 coats of Woodoc 10 polywax varnish, rubbed down between coats with Liberon 0000 steel wool.

The a couple of coats of paste wax.

I really like that look. Kind of unexpected.
