Just finished this floating top hall table. 14” deep, 49” long, and 31” tall.

I ebonized some oak using Speedball India Ink. It was a very interesting process. I did three coats, with a wipe of #0000 steel wool between coats. In the end the ink seemed like a thin coat of black paint – and it is BLACK!

I finished the entire piece with a hard wax oil, two coats also with a #0000 steel wool wipe down between coats. I don’t think the wax oil penetrated the ink, but it gave it a nice sheen when polished.

The black walnut is from a local sawyer.
