I’m not a huge fan of oak, but this slab had so much character I had to take a chance. There were areas that were`punky, so, after router-planing, I bathed it with a couple of coats of slightly thinned epoxy and then a full strength coat to fill the open grain areas. After sanding back down to wood (80, 120,150,240,320), I applied 6 or 7 coats of my version of Maloof’s mixture, 1/3 MS, 1/3 pure tung oil, 1/3 P&L 38. I’ve always loved the clarity of the P&L 38, though it’s getting harder to find. The legs are also oak with a walnut dowel bridge. Thanks for checking it out
