    Walnut wine table

    Finish finally dried today so my daughter Melissa is coming over in the morning to pick it up.

    Made from beautiful Michigan walnut The slats on the sides are cherry.

    Pretty simple but fun build. The wine glass moldings were kind of fun to make. I cut the angle on the edges about 7 degrees on the TS and then ripped out the waste.

    Finished with 3 coats of BLO, MS and Wipe on poly. I'm kind of concerned about the durability of the top. I figure spilled wine may stain it. Any suggestions if/what to do??

    Thanks for looking. Comments and suggestions either good or bad are always wanted.

    I know, I know I stink at taking pictures.

    That looks great, Bob.

    If I understand you correctly, you used a mix of BLO, mineral spirits, and poly. If that's the case, the finish on the top should be pretty durable. If you wanted to add more protection, you could add a topcoat or two of straight poly, but I suspect the mix you used will hold up just fine. (Worked pretty well for Sam Maloof and a lot of others.)
