    The finish is called, "Don't let the wind blow too hard so wax drops on my pretty finish."

    It is a finish most woodworkers want. However, it is very difficult to buy.

    Enjoy,

    Hi Bernie,
    I use Antique Oil on almost everything I do. Just love the look it leaves after a nice Ren buffing.

    Very cool, Dennis. Are they were made from one piece of walnut, or are the bases and columns separate pieces?

    Great first try. How many coats of AO did you put on them?
