Re: Sunburst Dining Table

Post by Roger-M » Sat Apr 13, 2019 5:42 pm

Just finished this to go in the corner of our kitchen/breakfast room. it is 134cms across and made from 24mm ply with a sunburst veneer of 2mm American Cherry and Birdseye Maple, separated with a 3mm string of sycamore and ebony. The legs are solid cherry. Finish is a single thin coat of Osmo Raw on the Birdseye Maple to keep it as pale as possible, and then 4 further coats over the whole piece of Osmo Top (satin) which seems to be bombproof. Loads of stuff here that I've never done before so a very steep learning curve to climb, but I had great fun climbing it!

There's a great WIP here, Mark, if you're interested. http://thewoodhaven2.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3659

You're absolutely right...it's a beautiful piece
