Small but very nice. The color variations are eye catching. Thank you for sharing.

Looks nice, The red against the dark legs and the light top really makes it pop

What process did you use to get the pine that dark for the legs and look that even? It is a very nice look that my wife would love.

Thanks Steve. Considering how even the color is, I had expected that you had used some kind of sealer or anti-blotching formula. What brand of stain was that?

I used the following stain:
Olympic
Wood stain
Deep ebony 41558
I brushed it on the surface, wiped it off after 3 minutes. Let it dry overnight, and rubbed the surface with a rough rag. When I brushed the clear coat, the stain started to mix a bit with the coat, my brush got a bit black.
This gives the pretty even color. (I hope you understand, my English needs some brush up (I was born in Hungary))

Steve that is fabulous. I use pine for my shop cabinets and for some items in the house too. I know pine can be cupped and warped but pine is fine to me.
