« Part 42: Selected a Finish and Applied First Coat Part 43 of Trestle Table series Part 44: Battens Fastened »

I am getting close to completing this project. This morning I applied my third coat of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO). I made sure I soaked the end grain parts. In 48 hours I will give this project a thorough inspection in order to determine if any further coats needs to be applied. If three is enough, then I will fasten the battens to the table top’s underside with #6 – 1 inch long square drive flat head screws. I will hand screw these in.

The table top for sure is gain a nice dark hue from the BLO applications. The cherry will only get better with time as it darkens naturally to the UV rays from the Sun.

Classic looking table. Can’t wait to see it all together.
