Good to see you using your P.P.E. when you are working in the shop. That dust sure can get ya over the years! The finish sure makes that table blend into your room great.

You just can’t beat 37 coats of clear lacquer. Really brings out the beauty of the wood.
Nice job. Could you share a link to the plans?

Great project! I tried to make one of these, but mine didn’t come out as nice as yours.

Man on man, that’s a great table. I can’t see a single flaw on it. Of course I can’t see the table either.
