Made this end table from some really old cherry boards in my wife’s uncles’ barn. I found some pics online of what I wanted but had to design/dimension on my own. I finished it with a mixture of boiled linseed oil, Danish oil, poly, and mineral spirits. I’ve really enjoyed mixing finishes – I’ve found it hard to go wrong as long as I only mix oil based stuff together (obviously) and use plenty of mineral spirits (to simplify application) and sand, sand, sand. Thanks for checking it out.

Very nicely crafted—and nice photographs.
