After a couple of minor setbacks, the table is finally finished (pun intended). Hey, I never claimed to be an expert finisher. Still, I think the finish on the tea table came out respectable, and more importantly, it’s an easy finish to apply, which is important when you don’t have a lot of experience with complicated finishing techniques (which I don’t). There’s a reason that people can make entire careers out of finishing/re-finishing. It’s an art in itself. I like to keep things as simple as possible.
