I had a lot of walnut laying around and decided to make this side table for my living room. I finished it with 3 coats of Tung Oil and sanded between each coat.

Looks nice. How did you secure the glass top?

I just made a rabbet all around the edge and set it in. I can lift it at any time from the bottom.

Its beautiful. I’ve never worked much with tung oil before. What made you decide to use this type of finish?

I had the Tung Oil open and had used it for another small project and liked how it turned out, so figured I use it for this as well.

The glass cost about $25-$30 and the walnut was about $6.50 BF, not sure how much I used. I’d guess it cost less then $75 total including finish, glass and lumber.
