So I’m near finished with the coffee table I am doing for our living room. It is made out of walnut I brought down to TX from Ohio. It is going to have custom glass pieces on the top and I may do a chamfer on the underside or roundover/ogee on the top (open to suggestions here as well)
my big question is how I should apply finish and what I should apply. I would put the process as:
1. Easiest (noob friendly)
I do own the HVLP sprayer from Rockler, but weather seems like it may be an issue and I dont want to spray inside. That said, if this is suggested I think there are a few days over the next two weeks where it might be warm enough/calm enough to do this outside. I really want to show off/enhance the grain patterns while keeping it semi dark still. I have sanded it from 80-120-150-220-360 and have everything pretty smooth, understanding the walnut is very porous.
As always thanks for your help!
