Made this small kitchen table from maple and walnut. My turning skills need more work, but the legs are pretty close. I have a duplicater for my Vega but was trying to improve my skills. Joints are not as tight as I wanted, guess its its called experience. I wanted to show the grain so I used 10 coats lacquer finish.
Looks like someone didn’t wipe the table last night.

Most excellent work, you need a craftsman these days to make one that well.

I think your table came out really nice. I always like a good combination of wood types and the walnut and maple surely looks good together. Sprayed lacquer or brushed?

We are never happy with what we do, that way we are always challenged to try again and improve on the next one. Well done, two of my favorite woods.

Agree with previous comments on timber choice; walnut is one of my favourites. Very, very nice piece.

Greg,
I actually used spray and brush deft (semi_gloss) with mixed results. I was trying to get a really gloss finish but gave up after about 10 coats. The prep between coats was killing me.
