This is a small breakfast table that I started while taking a 6 day course with Jeff Lohr. Since that time it has received 3 coats of Original Waterlox and a single coat of Minwax wipe-on poly. Both were applied with lint-free paper towels, and wiped down after 10 minutes. I may still wax the top.
I was inspired by Don Kondra’s improving my photography skills post to try a backdrop and some lighting. The backdrop sheet helped, but the lighting was actually worse than my small camera’s flash. Needless to say, it takes more gear than a pocket size camera. Still, these pics are better than my first batch in the basement, but don’t do justice to the walnut inlays.
This is my first finished piece of substantial furniture. I made every single cut, joint and mistake that you see here.
