Maple table for a small kitchen made with a 24” leaf for extension (not pictured). It was dyed with Transtint medium brown dye, and finished with 4 coats of Crystalac. The Apron was made in two identical halves as a bent lamination.

Jeff, this is a nice looking table. Maple can be a challenge to color but it looks like you did a good job. Did you do the chairs as well?

Thanks, Scott. Nope on the chairs. I do make chairs, but the customer had the chairs already, and wanted the table stained to match. I got very, very lucky in that the manufacturer of the chairs used transtint dye.
