Default Bookends

This is a Sue Mey Pattern done in Walnut and Maple then finished in Danish Oil, Polyurethane and Wax. 4 non-slip grips were added to each bookend to complete the project.

Thanks,


Jay

I was going to say "very nicely done" but DW beat me to it. Those are really very nicely done.

Beautiful work. Nice pattern, a bit different in when I see a grouping of crosses, I usually expect the traditional three. Really nice.

Maple & Red Oak?

I do spend a lot of time on finishing - some would say way too much - but (at least to me) it pays off.

My routine has become stain (if needed), Danish Oil, multiple coats of semi-gloss poly, then wax. Theses bookends were sprayed 6 times - the maple didn't need it - but the walnut was a little slow coming around.

The poly does give a nice looking finish all by itself - follow-up with wax that is applied with 0000 steel wool gives it quite a beautiful lustre, removes any dust particles and smooths out any imperfections - pretty much a perfect finish - the added bonus is that the piece is silky smooth to the touch. Fretwork and steel wool obviously don't mix too well so I use 600 wetpaper (dry) - just pass it lightly over the fretwork portions of the piece - then a light coat of wax and finally it is all polished out.

Thanks,


Jay
