This was my first and perhaps last commission piece. Its a reproduction Stickley console table done in cherry. Hand cut dovetails and M&T joints. I sanded it down to 200 grit and then finished it with 4 coats of wiping varnish which consists of 1/3 tung oil, 1/3 poly and 1/3 paint thinner. I then let it cure for a month, buffed it down with grade #0000 steel wool and then applied 2 coats of Miniwax Paste Wax until I got a nice sheen. I’m happy with the project, although I must admit it took me longer than expected. For the money I’m getting I would have rather given it to a friend or family member, but a deal is a deal and the money will be put to good use to purchase a much needed band saw! Any and all comments are always welcome and appreciated.
