« Part 1: E-M-L in process Part 2 of Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table series Part 3: Glaze applied »

The little plant stand/table project is moving along. This morning — at an ungodly hour before work — I gave it a final sanding with 180-grit, vacuumed the pores, branded it with my mark, and saturated the whole thing with TransTint dye.

I was particularly happy with the two half-lap joints that hold the base together. I’ve only done a few, but these are by far the best. Can’t wait to see them totally finished.

Next up: Waterlox sealer, General Finishes walnut glaze, and a matte top coat or two!

That’s looking great. What color Transtint did you go with?

It’s dark vintage maple. I use a Jeff Jewitt formula that mimics Stickley Fayetteville finish pretty closely. Here’s the link
