A small end table made from Walnut and finished with OSMO finish.
As always no sandpaper was harmed in the construction of this item:)

Wow, that looks amazing!

Love how you got the sap wood strip running through the center and matching up with the side pieces!

That is a piece to be proud of for years to come

On a side note, how do you like the OSMO Oil?

The joinery is dowels, the OSMO oil finish is something I came across at the Northern Alberta Woodworkers Guild meeting a while back. Thought I would give it a try, it’s a hard wax formula out of Germany and is very easy to apply in fact the hard part is learning not to put too much on! Found the best way to apply was to dab a little on a rag and just rub it in, very low VOC. Also picked up some solid based product to use for repair or was informed great for turned wood bowls as it is food safe.

Love to hear more about how you like the finish.
\See it is really low VOC, and is Soy and Sunflower oil.

Wondering how it will compare to Poly or Tung oil finishes.

I have been a die hard Waterlox user, but have been using a lacquer top coat. Which works great, but stinks the place up for some time.
Wondering how tough the finish will be/water rings/ abrasion etc. Sounds like it should be tough as they recommend it for wood floors.

like how you carried the sapwood to the apron.

Looks great!
Hard to tell from the photos, did you put a slight taper on the legs?

DrDirt, from the demonstration I saw this will be my finish from now on! I’m not into high gloss finishes, like to see the wood grain.
Randy, no taper just a little chamfer on the edges of the legs and hand chamfering for the top, working on the second table, that is when the Grand Daughters and yard work allow! Your welcome to come for a look see any time! Just don’t expect a clean shop.

Thanks Andre – the finish looks good, and it seems as though there will be a lot less smell than the Waterlox I use now.
Waterlox is also getting harder to find, and cannot be sold in several states.
