Nice job. Greene and Greene stuff always pulls me in. How was the table top varnish to work with? Did you brush it? Spray it? It looks beautiful.

Thanks everyone

CisciKid I brushed it on, about 4 or 5 coats, waited 72 hours then I sanded it all the way up through 2000 grit,, then buffed with a electrical buffer with 3m finesse it 2. Comes out like glass and is very durable.

I love G and G. Good idea on the mix of woods. I can’t see the pic too well right now (on my blackberry…) But it looks like you used the black walnut in the place of ebony. Looks good.

Thanks ,, yeah black walnut was used in place of ebony. I used minwax ebony stain. Poured the stain in a bowl and tossed the walnut pieces in to soak for an hour and repeat process a few times.

Yup. One of my favorite styles, too.

Brilliant design, choice of species, orientation of grain, and overall build.

Welcome !
