Modern Side Table

author-gravatar Sean Nov 05, 2018

With my moms birthday coming up, I decided to build a side table for her to use as a plant stand. The top is made out of some beautiful curly cherry and the base is mahogany that I dyed black using India ink. For the finish I wiped on 4 coats of a wiping varnish on the top and 3 coats on the base. I sanded in between each coat with 320 grit sandpaper.
