I put a before pic in there. there is 12 hours of sanding. I sanded the inside to 220 grit and sprayed Clear Wood Finish. Use Deft! I will show a final when I get the crystal glass top. Should be nice.

Love the figure. I don’t know if I like the outside. Should I varnish it or leave natural?

Very nice work Greg, 12 hours of sanding!!! reminds me of when I did a Malooff Rocker but I don’t think I had 12 hours of sanding. Sand,sand ,then sand some more. The results are well worth the effort,as I can see by you pics. I cant wait to see it with the glass.

Looks beautiful sanded, makes it look more refined, not sure about the outside, put the glass on it and see how it looks, you can always finish it later. The top edge looks really nice. Going to be an awesome piece!
