A lady asked for a quote to build a rustic coffee table…the kind made from 2×4’s and pine slats. Skip on to the finish. She asked for a dark brown stain. HUH?
The end result will be a coffee table that will go to their shack in the country. It will resemble a fishing pier with slats for the top and reclaimed pallet boards for the lower shelf. 2×4 frame members (actually milled smaller than that)
The closest I could find is Cabot Deck stain ($18/qt.) – Jarrah Brown or something like that. I don’t even know if I can spray a clear finish over it.
Your thoughts appreciated.
Note: Looking forward to this. We talked today about using the 2×4’s which I will rip and plane to make the various pieces. The way I will rip them, I plan to use the leftovers to make her a crate or two like posted in my projects. :-)
