It's a beautiful piece. What kind of oil are you using and how do you mix the oil with the urethane??
I do small projects with veneers and a lot of grecas. I like your table.
Thanks for the kind words. No particular period piece, just a combination of several Federal pieces that I've seen.
Wow! That is beautiful.
Excellent piece. I am curious if you used any particular period piece as your inspiration?
