I never thought I’d get it done, but luckily I was able to finish on time. Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and support.
I made this project slightly different by taking Green and Green’s Asian influence and making it literal using Japanese symbols, one wheat symbol (for life) and the other meaning love. To which, I think, all Lumberjocks and Green and Green can relate to.
I used walnut instead of mahogany. I started with two coats of pre-stain followed by red mahogany stain. Then used three coats of shellac, and finished with Watco wax finish. The only structural differences besides the scrolled aprons were the raised clouds on the breadboard ends. I also installed a touch-light underneath the tabletop.
