Arizona Hall Table Part 4

Today I sanded all of the components for both the walnut and mesquite hall tables to 400 p. I also spent a good amount of time shaping the through tenons and bottoms of the table legs to match the radius edge on the rest of the components.  I use compressed air to blow all of the dust out of the pores in the wood to prep it for finish.

Here is a look at the unfinished parts.

As well as the unfinished walnut top with ebony splines

After applying a coat of satin arm-r-seal to the walnut and waterlox sealer to the mesquite I will leave the parts to dry overnight.

It is very exciting to see the wood with finish for the first time.

The walnut top is stunning in person. It is a very beautiful piece of walnut.

I am holding off on sanding the mesquite top in due to bound moisture content. There are a few areas on the mesquite top that have moisture content of 16%. I will finish sand the top after it reaches a moisture content of less than 12% in all places.

Here is a look at the unfinished figure in the mesquite. It is going to show a lot of beautiful figure once it receives some finish.

After two coats I will assemble the stretcher and complete the through tenons before assembling the rest of the table base.
