This one was (is) a Federalist style writing table to replace the large S. Bent country kitchen table I used as a desk for some 25 years. I liked the walnut grain so much, I did not do as much string inlay as I normally do with my Federalist projects, but I did add the fluting to the legs and got to work on my skills of making half-blind dovetail drawer joints. The finish is several coats of tung oil and paste wax. Fun project!
This will be the last time I use MinWax paste wax. I’m trying to decide between MyLands and Renaissance Wax.
My new definition of retirement, “Every day is a Saturday, and every night is a Friday night.” I should have retired 40 years ago.
