The table has now had two coats of wax, 5 days apart. I shall give it another in another 5 days, then one last coat when it goes to its new home. I don’t think I can get much more shine out of it and the wax has given a great protective cover. After the fourth coat, I think it will be rock hard and after moving it around a couple times, I can tell you “It ain’t goin’ nowhere!!”
Pic #1 is taken looking along the top. You can see the trees as a mirror image in the timber.
Pic #2 is a shot down on the table top. The silver refelection at the far end is my Leigh FMT jig.(You can tell just by looking at it. (Ho! Ho!)
Pic #3 is the pedestal arrangement after finishing.

Beautiful table, Rob! The color variations on the top add a lot of visual appeal.

Rob, great finish, beautiful table, Mate.

Now, I need to ask you about what I think I see.

There seems to be gaps between the top of the pedestal and the table top. Has there been some movement in the timber to cause this? Or perhaps you have not yet screwed the pedestals to the top – yes, that’s it. No use doing this until the piece is installed in its final location.
