Table Making- Finish

I disliked the way the outriggers looked, so I profiled the ends before finishing.

The table was finish sanded and blown clean. I don't use stains, I feel they are too close to paint. I do use Watco, Danish Oil, in Dark Walnut. The oil is applied with a foam brush, and wiped off with a clean rag. The rag is a spontaneous combustion hazard. It must be hung or placed flat to dry.

The whole table is done at the same time.

The Watco doesn't hide the walnuts chatoyance and still gives it colour that would naturally bleach out over time. The table is left to dry.
