This table is out of Fine Woodworking magazine. It is built out of QS white oak. It is finished with brown dye, walnut stain, and a few coats of wipe on poly. Fun project to build.

Nice legs and stretchers. Your finishing schedule really popped those ray flecks. Good job!

Really nice. I also like the stretchers with through tenons. Can you describe the finishing process more? Did you use a grain filer?

Nice table – you got some good color out of it and some great ray fleck on the top…
