The pictures were taken in my shop that I currently due to work don’t like that close to and I built to use in my apt to practice dovetail joints and other small jobs like fixing saw handles and such. The metal bolts/hardware is from tools for working wood and I used the basic layout I downloaded from there site as well as something I read in fine woodworking.
The top is made from maple and the supports from cherry, This is second grade stuff I got local rough cut and works great for this type if thing. The cherry was finished first with water dye from W. D. Lockwood. I’m looking to use some on some projects in the future and this was a great test for it. The dye is very interesting to work with and can hardly see the difference between the sap and hardwood. I with with a golden color for the test.
The top has BLO on it and the bottom is finished with dye then shellac mixed from flake.
