tables and benches
« on: July 02, 2017, 09:00:14 pm »
I took a break from sawmilling and got in the shop and built a few tables the first one is blue pine with a satin poly finish and second is eastern red cedar with a satin conversion varnish finish .This was my first experience with conversion varnish but I think it will be my go to finish from now on.

Nice!  Hey how about a wider shot?  Is that all stock up against the wall?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Well done!

Like you, one of my favorite finishes for tables such as this is post catalyzed conversion varnish.

and a mix of log handling heavy equipment.
