Country table build (pic heavy)

Here are some pictures of the table that I just finished for our kitchen. It is an Ash top, stained Cherry.

Running the boards through the planer.



After planing and joining, getting the boards aligned is aided by biscuit joints. biscuit joints are only used for ease of alignment, the true strength of the joints comes from the gluing.





gluing up the top and clamping



The top after drying, and ready for finishing.



Ash is an open grained wood, so here is a slurry made of the sanding dust and tung oil, it got 5 coats.









ready for stain after squaring up the top



let the staining begin



First of three coats of stain



Attaching the apron to the table top. Pocket joints for the apron.



Fine sanded the top with 440, then applied 5 coats of water based poly. Here is the finished product.

Re: Country table build (pic heavy)

If I can ask a question...
Why water based poly? Which one leaves rings from cold drinks?

Re: Country table build (pic heavy)

A couple of reasons. Water based poly won't yellow and darken over time, it is more durable, and since my shop is connected to my house, no fumes to deal with. The coats go on thinner, but with a 2 hour drying time between coats it is not a problem. It is waterproof, but I would not put a hot pan on it, or leave water on it.

Re: Country table build (pic heavy)

Hunter thank you. And after reading the wording used to ask my question I apologize. It could have been asked nicer.
The table looks awesome. -SL
