Some day it will have oil stains and gouges - then it will be beautiful!

 ;D ;D

Speaking of which, how are you going to seal it? Spray on Poly?

Stain it with motor oil. Seriously. Look up using old/used motor oil as a wood stain. It's cheap, looks good, and works a treat too.

I plan to use up my left overs from the other projects I have done.

Sonics, super secret recipe...Dark Tung oil  https://www.walnutwoodworks.com   https://www.facebook.com/WalnutWoodWorks/

And I will add wipe on poly finish.

I used it on both the walnut workmate top and cabinet I made.

Nice. I like the wipe on poly. I used 7 or 8 coats on my coffee table. Its quite a bit of work.

Finished cleaning glue and sanding the bottom.  Amazing how much faster that goes than doing the top.   ;)



80 grit done topside.  Next 120 and 220.  Ugh.



Even added some fancy edges to it.   ;D.

(hard to see unfinished, had to adjust contrast a bit.)

As cool as it would be and as much as I would like too do it.

I think Im gonna have to pass on checkering the top.  It would just take too much time.

So I think I will just score a path w the circular saw.  1/8" deep cuts.

Came out pretty darn good. A spray adhesive and pneumatic stapler were key. Thanks bud!

top scored.



Almost forgot the dowels.  I think 18 per side w 5 on the end cap.

That Gorilla glue is great for this.  The dowels were a TIGHT fit and even still just a smidge still cam bubbling up to the top.

Started at 4 a.m with an hour break for lunch and a cat nap.    :P

80 -150-220 Sanding done, fit the hardware, dis-assembled for tung oil.
 

I haven't decided if its getting poly or carnauba wax finish.
 
The pic looks a bit splotchy right now, as the oil is soaking in and drying.
