« Part 8: A Bench is Added Part 9 of Farmhouse Table w_Buffet series no next part

Sorry, but there just aren’t bunch of pics for this installment… I did show the ‘client’ several stain choices, and they picked ‘double coverage’ of Early American 203 (as I recall).

Made good use of Minwax’ Wood Conditioner, then stained tops apart from bases (those got primer, of course, then acrylic latex ‘White’, several coats for good coverage.

Table top shows planes marks (they wanted, I obliged), to good effect.

Last trick was rubbing out the three-coat poly / danish oil finishes on the buffet and farmhouse table. Liberal use of wax and steel wool, dry for a half-hour, buff out and done. Made for a very nice-to-the-touch finish.

My daughter kindly posed with the completed set prior to delivery. The table is large, but sure looks smallish in the background!

Finished product is great. Super job, Smitty.

With this one under the belt will you welcome more commissions in the future?

Classic look, good job.

How did your initial time estimate compare to actual?
