What a fun project to work on! The photos are various stages of the project. The material required was amazing low! If my memory serves me right about two full sheets of 15-ply Russian Birch high end furniture grade plywood and some Poplar or Aspen for the framework. Incredibly sturdy and very modern looking. Custom mixed oil based wiping stain to achieve the dark chocolate color. Not splotchy at all. It was made in two pieces to make it easy to transport out of my shop! A surprisingly economical project.

Great table. Did you seal the plywood before staining? Thanks for posting.

Awesome. That Stain looks like it was sprayed on with some kind of undercoating before stain.

No sanding sealer used or undercoating. I experimented with both before actually stained the table. I learned very quickly to avoid minwax , cabot , or rustoleum stains and the patchiness problem disappears.
