That is a sharp looking table. I love garnet and amber shellac; they give such a nice glow to the wood. Very nice build and finish.

Finish looks fine from here! A very nice table – I like the walnut/stainless combination.

Excellent design and build.
The choice of material is nice. I like the way you used the knots/wild grain in the pine on the drawers.
The finish looks very good in the photos. I like the warm tones the garnet shellac imparts to the wood.
Keep up the good work!

Spot on with this design, love the drawer fronts like others. I wise woodworker on here once told me, “I’m always amazed at how many people aviod knots in projects and want the wood to be 100% clear” I have to agree with him and your choice to use it in your project! Well done.

I like your island. I’m usually not a big fan of pine and I’ve never used pine and walnut together, but I really like the contrast and what you did with the drawer fronts could make anyone a fan of Pine!. Great job. What’s wrong with the finish? Looks good in the pictures! You have a winner there.

I cleaned my computer screen, and the finish still looks great. You really made the pine look elegant, and I don’t think thats easy to do. Nice job!!!
