I started this project last Sunday and it’s basically finished except for the final coat of poly. I want to let the oil dry for a couple weeks first.
The top is 8/4 walnut with turquoise filling the checks and natural danish oil.
The bottom shelf is 4/4 walnut left natural.
The corners were done on a joiner, the easiest way for sure.
The frame is pecan with a fruit-wood danish oil.
The pecan barely takes color after sanding to 220, it may take another wipe.
I’ll install the leveling legs and dowel the top down after the final finish goes on. All surfaces are finished.
It weighs about 40 lbs.
This is one of the show pieces I will be trying to get a furniture gallery to look at selling.
Ideally, I’d like to have a nice high end furniture store, locally owned, put my stuff in their store. Hopefully they wont try to dictate to me what to make.
I’d like to clear 700$ on this piece, but I think a furniture store can get a couple hundred more for it.
I’m lousy at pricing so chime in if you have a formula.
