Here is my Hayrake table to complement the dining room chairs that are still a work in progress (need to assemble the rest). Both chairs and table were from plans sold by Fine Woodworking and designed by Kevin Rodel and Michael Peckovich, respectively. I was fortunate to get the inner four boards of the top from one 3×13 inch cherry beam. I finished the base using Tried and True Danish Oil followed by two coats of T&T Varnish Oil. The top was sanded to 320 and finished with 4 coats of Waterlox. I sanded the first coat but only used brown paper bags to polish the 2nd and 3rd coat. Fourth coat is untouched though I may wax it.
I had a great deal of fun making this and watching Mike’s video taught me a lot of nice skills.
(See if you can find the Woodduck.)
