Very nicely done. I like the rich contrasting colors and textures. Your joinery looks spot on too.

MDF has never had it so good. Great looking project.

MDF is soaked with multi-coats of poly then rubbed out.

Very nice, I tried poly on my TS Sled. Seemed to get real bumpy. How many coats until that stops? Any secrets to it. I’ve been thinking about using it for a desktop, the TS Sled scared me. Yours looks awesome.

If I remember right, I used some wipe-on poly for the first coat. Then I put on 3 or 4 coats regular poly with sanding in between. I used gloss and then I sanded with 800 grit on the last coat and finished off with 4 ought steel wool for a satin finish. It turned out very smooth, no bumps.

Nice job! The pleasantly understated design reminds me of a mid-century Danish (?) cabinet maker who used those colors to great advantage. I used to have some of his work . . . if only my old brain could remember names!
