  • First furniture effort: side-table

    Hooray, I finally get to post a finished project! This is a side-table for my son's room.



    Red oak with 3 coats of BLO and then wipe-on poly. This was a major learning process: first furniture, first time doing M&T's, drawer, etc.



    Thanks for all your advice that made this possible.

                Karen is right, that grain is an eye-popper. You did and excellent job with the finish. That's a project that will see a lot of use for a lot of years.

                    Hey, thanks for all the kind words. Makes me kinda glad the poor pic quality doesn't show the mistakes. I was very pleased with the grain on the tabletop; I love the way it turned out. Thanks for your encouragment -- and all the advice that made it possible.
