The finis is as follow 2 coats of Danish oil, about 5 coats of wipe on poly and wax. It took me about 40 hours, I started it on 03/11/14, my next project in a desk for my wife.

That looks very nice. How do you make inlay like that over such a large surface? Is the top a veneered panel, or solid stock? The curved legs and dovetails really stand out.

if i started that project when my kids were young, given my pace of building, it would wind up as a wedding gift.

great work, love it.

Thank you guys for your comments, I appreciate it.
Allen the top is solid wood, I edge jointed it and the inlay is 1/16 inch thick, the outside banding and corners I use a router plane to cut the groove, the inside I used a router with a 3/8 inch straight bit.
David if I could I would but only after they bring home a master degree at least, lol.
Regards and God bless you all.

Wow, do the kids appreciate it? It would have dried up weetbix and crayon marks on it in my house!
