I assume that if one is going to take part in this forum then it is better to share.
So here goes:
This is a project I finished a few weeks ago. It is a Kitchen table in white oak, finished with wiped on danish oil (4 coats) and sealed with polyeurethane (3 coats so far) When I set up my new air compressor I will probably spray a couple more for luck! It is sized to seat 6 comfortably and 8 at a squash.
1. Check the proportions of the various bits and pieces prior to cutting wood. When I assembled the table the first time the top looked a little dainty with those thick legs, so I glued on a rail below the top to make it look thicker.
2. Hand cutting mortices and tenons is hard work. Next time take the time to build the required jigs for the router/table saw!
3. Spend a little more time aligning the boards for glueup. I really wanted a glass smooth finish which I achieved, but at the cost of sanding for days!
Sorry these are the only pics I have at the moment.
