This is a project I designed and built approx. 6 months ago.
Someone was throwing away the two Rail Ballusters. I completed the balance.

My choice of wood (Birch). I love finishing Birch.
I decided to finish the table with medium to dark walnut, with final finish being urethane.

I am knowledgeable and familiar with dyes. I premixed 1oz. of aniline powder dye with 16ozs. distilled water to provide me with a strong solution as my toner. The entire table was colored only using this as my toner which I sprayed with my Apollo Twin Turbine. I carefully feathered on approx. 8 to 10 passes to obtain my color.

I have other projects in my workshop site or Gallery page if you wish to view. Built and Finished as well.

I have been away from this site for some time, but very excited to return. Love Lumberjocks.

Your comments welcome. Even questions!

On my workshop, shows UNITED STATES. I am from Canada.
