So what do you do with some extra pieces of wood in the shop? You make a sofa table. This one is out of Red Oak and finished off with a dark walnut oil and 3 coats of clear shellac. The top also has a coat of quick dry Poly and a couple of coats of wax applied to it. It was a fun project and fills a need everyone has.

Beautiful work as usual. I just love the finishes you get.

Thanks Andy.. my finishes have been getting better of late. I starting using only bristle brushes am getting a much smoother finish! I vow never again to use a foam brush for anything. I also too have been playing around with an air sprayer I recently picked up but have not yet used it on a finished piece.
