This is my latest creation. This piece of maple has everything you would want in a piece of maple, burling, eyes, natural edge, voids, bark inclusions, flames, quilting, color and spalting. This piece was between 75 & 100 years old when it died. My 22-44 Performax paid for it’s self during the leveling of this piece. I started out using 36 grit and went to 100 grit to finish with the Performax. I used my orbital from there and finished with 280 grit. I applied 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal. I steel wooled (00) between the 1st & 2nd coats, orbital sanded using 280 between the 2nd & 3rd coats and finished with 1200 after the 3rd coat and added 2 coats of hand wax. My legs were special ordered from definemodern.com in So CA (thank you Daniel). Now for the task of selling it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Comments and questions are always welcome.
