This is a cherry table I built for a client. The finish schedule: 1 seal coat of shellac sanding sealer 2. light coat of boiled linseed oil 3. let the cherry age for a week to darken and the oil to cure 4. apply another seal coat of shellac sanding sealer 5. spray 3 coats with water base lacquer (acrylic). The size is 23” wide by 32” long and 22” high.

That finish sounds like it took a lot of patience, but the results look great. I like the figure on the top and the nice clean lines.

So, 18 years old and already building a list of clientele, that’s great. Since word of mouth is the best advertising, this table should net you work for years to come. Great table, very beautiful.

Glad to see that you have clients that understand that finish takes time. Hard to get these days.
Very nice table by the way.
