I have been working with wood since I was a good. Always loved it. Found a lot of good information on this site too. Lately, I have turned my hobby from fly fishing to wood working. I have all the necessities to get into trouble ;-).
Just wanted to share this and get some feedback from the pro’s around here.
The top has a natural sheen as I sanded from 220 finishing grit, stepping through all the way to 2000 grit, steel wool and ultimately using an orbital polisher. I used dark walnut minimax stain to stain the table. The table was assembled mostly using a Kreg jig for pocket screws. The table top is made with 2×6 with the ends being 2×4’s. I used polyurethane on the first sealing, sanded with 4000 grit, waxed and passed over with 2000 grit and 4000 grit, then began polishing.
The picture I have attached is the completed top down look.
This was my first large project that i have done. Recently it has just been smaller things, like coin holders, business card holders, and things like that to get me comfortable before I started large projects like this. Anyways, looking to always get better. Hope you guys enjoy!
The legs were polished later also, just not as brilliant of a shine to add depth to the table.
