As always, I apologize, in advance, for my poor picture taking ability.
This coffee table is 2’ by 4’ by 18” and was made with qswo. I mitered the pieces for the legs so the rays are showing on all four sides. In order to help with alignment during the gluing process I added splines since I don’t have a lock miter router bit. All the other joinery is mortise and tenon, except the top is attached to the base with figure 8’s. I used a 1/8” roundover router bit for the edge treatment.
I sanded all the pieces to 180G, then sprayed TransTint dye to highlight the rays, scuff sanded with 320G, sprayed Target Coatings UltraSeal-WB Shellac Sealer, another light sanding, toned with a different TT dye in Target’s EM6000 and finally clear EM6000 for the topcoats with 1-2 additional sandings to remove nibs.
Thanks for looking.
