Here is the first project I took on. Basically just cutting the edges and using a router and then staining it. It was then attached to a sit/stand motorized desk. Very basic stuff, but I hope to move on to harder projects. The wife likes her desk so that’s what counts. One thing I did learn the hard way when I was putting the Varathane on is don’t assume the surface you are working on is level. It all settled to one end of the table and I had to remove it and apply more stain and seal it again. I won’t make that mistake again.

Very nicely done! Happy wife – happy life.

How does the edge profile feel on the forearms? I like that better than a simple round-over, but I’ve stayed away from that on work surfaces because I’m worried about pressure from the edge on skin.

It’s a double Roman Ogee that I used and the wife has never mentioned any issue with the edge, which if there was I’m sure she would have made me fix it.
