This was a lot of fun I wasnt really sure what I was going to do with it but I wanted to try working with the anyline dyes. My daughter wanted it. So much for making any money… comments and critiques always welcome.

The dye’s look great. I was wondering about the darker brown in 1/2 of the table. Is this because the dye didn’t recact the same or is the wood structure so different.

Fantastic color! The pined/pegged joints are a nice added touch.

Know all about the kids ending up with the projects. Need to sell some to by more wood/tools but they keep wanting them. (If not them then the wife)haha

Keep up the great work.

I like it!! Wouid be great in the right room. Did you stain the bottom? Personally, I think the bottom would be better lighter, but beauty is in the eye of…...... :-)

Thank you all for your kind words . Karson the darker color on the one side was the result of the woods original color in that area it took the dye ok. The bottom is cedar with a briwax stain finish to give it an old look

Curly Cherry ??
How did you dye a normally reddish brown colored wood to a light blue ?
The grain patterns in the top boards appear to be Maple.
Thanks : )
