A few weeks ago I built a bedside table for a client in Santa Fe. It was going into their bedroom next to a few other pieces that I had made for them in the Arts & Crafts style. I wrote an article about building it on my Furniture Blog if you’re interested in seeing how I went about it.

Great looking nightstand! That ray fleck really pops, and I like the simple, elegant design!

Scott, which transtint dye(s) did you use? I really like how that finish turned out.

I used straight Golden Brown for the table. I can’t remember, off the top of my head which color I used on the pull. It might have been Reddish Brown. The table was shot with about 5 coats, in quick succession, of the Golden brown mixed in a 50 / 50 mix of alcohol and lacquer thinner. When I did samples with it mixed in straight alcohol I was getting bleed back from the pores. The lacquer thinner lowered the surface tension and let it all flow out more evenly. The pull was shot with multiple layers of trans tint in shellac. Everything was sealed with Sherwin Williams vinyl sealer with a top coat of CAB acrylic.
