This piece I made as my final work in school.
Its made of walnut and red oak. Finishing is made the same way as in my first coffee table project – Glaze oil mixed with beeswax.
The project included many pretty hard things, like cnc-routing and laminating.

Tell me what ya think, ill be more than happy to answer questions!

Great design, nicely done. Chairs are cool, I like the slats in the backs!

I really like the way you used the two woods in combination with each other. They compliment each other well.
I like the design on the table legs and the change in the width of the walnut strips in the chairs adds a really nice detail to the piece.

What beautifully designed and executed set. I’m not familiar with Glaze Oil. Is it like Danish Oil?

Thanks all for comments!
I think Its called galze oil only in Finland where i live, basically its linen oil with some wood hardening resin in it.
Im really not sure because of the lanquage barrier;)

Btw: you all got some pretty amazing wood workings, definetly far far higher in quality that in Finnish woodworking generally

Outstanding table!
=> What exactly is Glaze Oil and what mixture do you use with the beeswax?

Glaze oil is flax based oil (or linen based) im not sure cos’ the dictionary gives me those two words and my native lanquage isn’t english :)
And it contains some resins – which hardens the wood grain. And mixed with beeswax and melted it gives a nice satin gloss to the wood.
Heating the mixture in microwave oven helps the absorbtion process.
Mixture is 1/3 beeswax and 2/3 of glaze oil.

I’m really glad you took a separate picture of the top so we could see the contrasting wood better. Very nice design, impeccable craftmanship.
