I made these quartersawn white oak stands a few years back. I used a Minwax Special Walnut stain, along with a number of coats of wipe-on poly. I finished it up with a coat of paste wax (including buffing). It looks like it needs some dusting and another coat of wax. These were fun to make. I think most of it was put together from scraps leftover from another project. They are heavy and solid.

Good looking QSWO stands. I’ve yet to make something out of QSWO. I don’t know why, probably because I do more turning than building. Just got to get busy. Nice work..

Thanks for the comments guys.

Mike – you should give QSWO a try sometime. QSWO is very stable and strong. The stability has to do with the way it is cut, like other quartersawn boards. There is nothing worse than putting your heart and sole into a piece of furniture to see it warp, cup, split, or “wackout” on you. Yes – “wackout” is my word. You’ll get hooked on it. Give it a try. My wife was just asking me when I am going to start some more QSWO projects. I have been doing a bunch of maple stuff lately, as we have a considerable amount of maple cabinets in my house. Looks like I have the go ahead to purchase some more QSWO.

Very nice Tim. These look great. I like the look of quartersawn oak, it’s very distintive.

Thanks for posting these.
