This is another Red Oak project from the tree i chain saw harvested 6 years ago. qtr. sawn wood Vanity top and mirror frame with half lap Dovetails and my parts built lights mounted on Walnut sconce pads. The finish is hand rubbed 2 layers of oil golden oak followed with rubbed varnish-tung oil mixed. Sanded and followed with another brushed 3 coats of fast drying polyurethane, sanded and followed with 3 coats of wiping urethane; Minwax other than the varnish- oil mixed. This is one of those projects that starts with a leaky pipe repair and balloons out of control, lol…new floor and the base board i made from solid wood and stained with finished with var-thane, those were standing in the corner waiting for me too. More cabinet work is ahead in this room.
This is my own design that i just go with my feel at the time for the “what fits the design on the fly” no plans in hand. Updates will follow, i just need a break !!
Thank For looking.

Thank You all for the encouragement and positive replies. I have shown in the gathering wood and White Oak chain sawn projects, i have a lot of supply and projects on the way. The finishing of the coarse grain is not that bad to accomplish and i use no fillers. I want the grain texture but filled with tong oil vanish mix, rubbed out and waxed, satin sheen only. It is a much easier finish to keep looking great. High Gloss shows it all, just like Black cars finishes. I used to paint those too.
Thanks For looking,
