    Finally finished the dining table

    I promised SWMBO a new dining table for Thanksgiving, last thanksgiving
    Finally done and she is happy. She even suggested that I probably could have finished it much sooner if I had more Festools! What a lady!

    The wood is walnut with lots of sapwood. Finish is solarlux lemon yellow dye, mohawk burnt amber glaze, rockhard varnish, and menzerna polish. Thanks Per for the rockhard/menzerna tip!

    Thanks to John Downy and others for help with the breadboard process.

    Well, I guess I better get started on Christmas stuff, hopefully I'll have some done for Valentines .
    Don't believe everything you think!

    That looks very nice, Jesse. I'm guessing LOYL figures it was worth the wait.

    I'm sure the promised delivery date was forgotten as soon as she saw that beautiful table. Great job Jesse.

    Beautiful work Jesse! I'll have to check into the rockhard finish for a project. That Walnut really looks great!
