This is a project I finished a few months ago fro my eldest sister, a housewarming gift that ended up a few months late lol.
Walnut and red oak, top finished with 15 coats of poly/BLO. All sanded to 600 grit.
Sorry for the pics, didn’t take many before kicking it out the door, had to drive it out to her the next day.

-- Third time's the charm, right?

Looks really nice from what I can tell.
Well done.

That’s a great looking Nakashima coffee table—I’m sure she loves it!

That’s a fantastic table, looks like it took a long time. Did you router jig flatten the top? How is the top attached to the base?
