Air dried black walnut hall table to the wife’s specifications. Old school techniques with a lot of dovetails and only six screws (to hold the top on). Color achieved with one part golden oak Minwax stain, one part mineral spirits, and 1/4 part raw sienna pigment. Sealed with 1 part Seal Coat and one part alcohol. Final coat was 5 coats of 1 part semi gloss Minwax polyurethane mixed with one part mineral spirits (ragged on). Rubbed out with Libron Black Bison wax.

Very nice table. Nice tight joinery, beautiful details, and great looking wood.

I like the design , and execution of that design, right all the way down to the finished table.It is really handsome. I have made one with flamed mahogony in a similar vein with regards to design but I slightly prefer your version LOL Alistair
