Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #4: Finished (Almost)

01-22-2015 03:31 PM by Marshall | 7 comments »

I spent the better part of the last two weeks applying Arm R Seal to the table. The table top got four brushed coats of full strength Arm R Seal on each side. Between each coat I buffed with a 1000 grit festool platin pad. I then wiped on a 50/50 mix of Arm R Seal and Naphtha on each side. Here is the top after the fourth coat: And after the final wipe on coat: The base got five coats of wiped on Arm R Seal/Mineral Spirits 50/50 mixture: Finally, it was time to attach the b...

GRAFT #1: ...incredible grafted walnut slab will become cabinet.

11-28-2010 06:59 PM by Blake | 25 comments »

This is a slab from the base of a walnut tree where Claro Walnut and English Walnut were grafted together. Anyway I just absolutely love this slab and I have been saving it for a long time. It was given to me by a friend. I finally pulled it out to resaw it. I plan on creating bookmatched panels for the front of a cabinet. Grafting, for those who may not know (and I’m no expert) is basically splicing two species of trees together to help with the propagation of the desired spe...
