In more exciting news my first designed and built piece of fine furniture is coming to an end. This large slab coffee table has been an incredibly fun project, challenging and incredibly rewarding.
Getting the table base glued up was a bit of a nail biter. Even with sub assemblies the final glue up had ten different glue surfaces coming together all at once; which meant working very quickly.
After the base glued up I secured the top to the base and began the finishing process. I sealed the top with several coats of shellac to help the final polyurethane coats take more evenly.
And now on to the next project. Look closely and you can see it lingering in the background.
