« Part 9: Glued up, and assembled Part 10 of End Table, out of Ash series no next part

Didn’t like the gaposis around the plywood panels…had some thin strips of Ash…was just enough to cover the worst offenders..made a flat molding all the way around…clamps and glue…no nails

Let this sit awhile….did a bit of mixing…made a few stain samples for the Boss to look at.
Skinny Oak strip has a Witch’s Brew…Boss liked it…

Later, after the glue had dried..clamps came back off, everything sanded to 180 grit…Applied two coats of the Brew, wiped down the excess…allow it to dry…
Hauled the table upstairs, for the Boss to see it..
Time for the PIP..

Side view..

From the one end….

And..the old Pallet wood table it will be replacing

As that 25+yr old top was getting tired..

Table was made from the Oak runners of a couple pallets…about the second season of The New Yankee Workshop.

Project still needs a coat or two of clear gloss varnish….and then get posted as a Project…

Thanks for following along!

In the “end” you created a good looking end table. Thanks for taking the time for the photos and blog.

A simple yet attractive masterpiece. I appreciate the additional shelf at the bottom as I always fancy storage space. It is better to be able to put some items on it rather than letting your feet wander aimlessly.
