« Part 76: Blackstone Table, Pt. 2 Part 77 of Misc. Shop Stuff series no next part

Okay, third and final blog installment before this goes to completed project. But before I get started, let me just say April weather is really weird…

Moved table into a side shed to get a coat of black paint on the base. First, do some chamfers on the bottoms of each leg, to counter splintering as the table might get dragged around a bit. The Stanley squirrel tail block took care of that.

And then sprayed the base!

Put the top back on, and put the bottom shelf (that will stay unfinished / not be painted) back on.

That’s it, on the project! Thanks for looking.

That looks disgustingly cold, but those chamfers don’t.

The shel…, design element, really ties the room together.

Is that a dome stain?

Yes, on a square of cardboard that’s tacked on top of the shelf.
