Walking outside my parents house this winter I found an couple of old boxes of wood, which my parents said was open game. FREE WOOD!! So when getting home I started to complain to my Fiance that our “catch everything” table was not big or nice enough… and just like that she took the bait and a new project was born!
While doing the table I felt like it needed some sprucing up so I added the circle inlays on the top corners and the bunch of grapes on the front. After watching the Wood Whisperer video on sand shading I had to try and the leaves and grapes gave me the opportunity.
The joints are Mortise and tenon (all the skirts and railings to the legs), Box joints(top to bottom portion of legs) and the butt joints(table top).
I finished it off with Natural Watco Danish Oil, 4 coats of Satin Minwax poly mixed with Mineral Spirits(80:20) then 3 coats of Carnauba Wax.
Thanks for looking
