I finished this project today.
I used “MINWAX tungoil finish” 5 times on the top, and Shellac 3 times for the rest.

Tomorrow, I’ll give it to my wife.
Since the white-color finished furniture is the trend with Korean young housewives.
I wonder she will like it or not.

Thank you ^^

J, this is a gorgeous table. I have followed your construction blog and simply cannot imagine the effort and talent that went into this piece. To build it by hand is a skill that you should be proud to have.

Without a doubt she will love it.

Even if she would prefer the white (which I can’t fathom that over a natural finish), she has to realize and appreciate the work and dedication you put into making a table such as this. It’s nothing short of stunning!
