Thanks for the warm welcome and comments.

The finish on the plant stand was as follows.

Apply water based dye to set a base color. Lightly sand.

Apply 1 coat of clear shellac. Rub down with steel wool.

Apply walnut gel stain. Wipe off excess.

3 coats of clear shellac, rubbing with steel wool after each layer.

Apply brown Briwax and rub it out.

Really brings out the figure in QSWO.

I think quartersawn oak is one of God’s greatest creations, and you’ve done a marvelous job of showcasing it. Very, Very nice!
