Just finished this myrtle slab table, Wife is happy now. !!!
Killer! Would love having something like that!
Awesome! Really nice
Very nicely done Gary!
Good looking table man, really like it! Tony
Magnificent table. How did you finish the top?
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
That’s really nice!
Interesting wood— none of that around here.
That is a humdinger of a table. Great job so far.
That is beautiful.
Have a great day,
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.
