This was made from a “beetle killed” white oak that was on my farm. I milled the log and this was one of the projects I attempted.

A wonderful side board. The ray’s in the oak really pop out with the finish that you used. Did you build this from a set of purchased plans? How was the finish accomplished? Very nice craftsmanship.

I made this from a plan in AW , it was an old magazine , but the plan still worked ok, ha ha.
I mixed transfast water soluble dye- dark choc brn, and med red brn. Then sealed it with a 1lb cut of wax free shellac, then about 4 coats of satin (gel) varnish.
