I had four projects that have been in different stages of completion. After finishing a Walnut Mid-Century Modern coffee table, I finished this sofa table. This is my second variation on Chris Schwarz Shaker End Table. I made a large desk last summer, and now this sofa table. It is for a friend and the dimensions were given to me by her.
Dovetails were cut by hand. Finish is plain Arm-R-Seal. It is already darkening and will be a rich, dark color in 9 months or so. I am considering switching my standard finish for cherry from Arm-R-Seal to clear and Garnet shellac topped by General Finishes High Performance. The speed and quality of sprayed finishes is winning me over (plus avoiding the oil based annoyances).
