Hi all, finally the top is done.
I won’t say much about the process as you all know it already :)
Here is the final look of it.
It did take me a bit longer as I expected but never mind.
So enjoy.

just curious as to what you are using to sand the gesso(I know 1200 grit, just what type of paper-adalox?), and how many coats you ended up using? not sure if you ever said what the origional wood was. guessing european walnut.

I use 3D wet and dry, 20 coats of gesso and 13 coats of bole.
The wood is lime.
