In this video I complete the dining table by constructing the table top, gluing up the base assembly, sanding, applying dye, and finishing with a wiping varnish. The finished table top measures 42” x 74” x 13/16” thick. The table top has a 45 degree under bevel and a swept ¼” round over applied to the edge. After sanding to 180 grit, I applied Transtint Dark Walnut Dye diluted with denatured alcohol to create an even consistent color. I applied a shop made wiping varnish of equal parts polyurethane, mineral spirits, and boiled linseed oil. The table took approximately 2 months to complete.
