Ok…Managed to complete the table. Boy was it a challenge in more ways than one (that’s a story for a different time.)
The table is made of quartersawn red oak, the top, aprons, and shelf are made from the same board. The legs and the breadboard ends come another. This caused a slight problem in the finish but not too bad. I turned out OK but I would do a couple of items diffenently next time.
The finish started with yellow dye, then an English Oak stain. That was followed by 3 coats of shellac and 3 coats of water based poly, satin finish.
I have yet to build a peice that I am totally satisfied with, I guess that’s the perfectionist in me coming out.
