Our new dining room table in the Parsons style. (With purchased chairs… Maybe someday I’ll try a chair????)
A friend loaned me a few extra clamps and tools I was missing including a domino joiner. Which may be the coolest tool I’ve ever used.
Built it with Cherry then violated a cardinal rule by staining it to look more like Walnut. It took a lot of fiddling but ended up archiving the color my wife wanted with a single coat of General Finishes Java gel stain.
I learned a lot! This is definitely the largest project I’ve ever tried and I’m thrilled with how it turned out.
The LJ archives have been helpful along the way so I decided I should share the end result.
