    Karl, It is not quite done yet. I filled with a slurry of Timbermate and sanded, then I used some homemade Black walnut stain to accentuate the darkest center of the pith that was dark and streaky. I made this over 25years ago from smashed Walnut hulls and water with some other concoctions that even I can't remember.
    Then I added a light brown tinting rubbing finish to show the curly and other grain lines. Next will be either outdoor spar urethane or Systems west table top finish.
    Most of the time I use shellac followed by spar urethane. Still learning this game with every item I finish. Gary

    Beautiful table. I love the proportion of the legs to the rest of the build. Just right in my opinion. The table is saying to me, grab a cup of coffee and have a seat, lets visit.
