After a long, long, long, painstakingly long finishing process, I finally moved in my new dining room table. For those of you who haven’t read my blog, I also documented the entire build, which you can browse here
I followed the dimensions of Bob Lang’s book pretty closely, only editing the legs based on the material I had. During the finishing process, I wanted to highlight the through/pegged tenon, so I decided to leave the peg natural wood instead of painting it also.
The supports are finished with black Milk Paint and satin poly, while the table top is finished with Golden Oak stain and about 5 coats of gloss poly.
The hardest part of this post was getting good lighting for the pictures. The hardwood floors and wall color really throw off the white balance and exposure on my phone’s camera, and quite frankly, I was too lazy to worry about getting g out the DSLR for this.
Thanks for looking, as always comments/questions welcome.
