A mesquite bench that I was able to finish in a few days. I poured clear epoxy in the crevasses for a simple coat and then I applied a few coats of urethane with a brush since I dont have a sprayer. Its just slightly duller, less shiny. The grooves feel nice, I like shaping this wood.

Very beautiful. Bet it’s heavy also.

Only weighs 70 Lbs. There are two square strips underneath where I used screws to hold top on. Its sturdy but no glue was used in case some day someone wants to refinish it. Gonna try my luck with the co-signer. Thanks LJ friends :)
