Made from QSWO. Finished with TransTint Honey-Amber dye, shellac, Minwax Dark Walnut stain, & Semi-gloss lacquer. Enjoyable straight forward project. To my surprise it turned out square and sets level. It taught me some lessons and increased my confidence.

Patrick, you did a great job with the table. Would you care to detail your finishing schedule? Thank you!

I started by sanding to 180 grit. Raised the grain and then light sanded again. Then one coat of TransTint honey amber dye (mixed more to the honey than the amber). I topped that with one coat of clear shellac, allowed to dry, then vey lightly scuff sanded with 180 grit. Then one coat of Minwax dark walnut stain, allowed to set for 5 minutes and the wiped across the grain ( attempting to not remove pigment that has settled into the grain). After dry time I sprayed several coats of semi gloss lacquer from a spray can.
I’m still playing with dye colors and stain color. I’ve really been satisfied with the dye then stain process, and I’m always open to suggestions.
Thanks for asking.
Patrick

I like the fact that you made the legs so you see QS figuring on all 4 sides. Having made some of these legs, I find them the hardest part of the project.

Great job!

Very eye catching! This is a great looking project, and the stock selection as well as the finish are first rate.

Love that QSWO. Beautiful grain and finish. Out of curiosity what do you pay a board foot for the QSWO. I got a quote from a local guy for 200 brd ft @ $2.50

Not so lucky here in Fort Worth. I paid $6.00 per BF.

Thank you for the info. I was wondering how the stain would work on top of the shellac since it wouldn’t penetrate into the wood that way, but, apparently, it settles into the open grain. I appreciate it. :)

Very simple design which makes it an elegant piece. This project turned out very well.
