This is the very first wood project I’ve ever done. I like the rustic/natural look of wood and its shapes and I’ve tried to do as little as possible to the wood itself except for sanding. This slab is black walnut? given to me by a friend. I have 3 more slabs of various widths and lengths and I have a huge pile of walnut “brush/trash” that was left-over from a huge walnut cut down on the property.
I have about 20 hours total in this project and most of that was sanding. I finished it with 2 coats of natural Danish oil and then buffed it with a cotton cloth to try and get some luster to it.
I really enjoy the website and ALL of the beautiful projects that have posted. They inspire me to say the least.
Hopefully I will be adding more projects in the future…...............thanks for looking/commenting…..Jim
