I was given the opportunity to make this dining table for a fellow servicemember whom I've had the pleasure of serving with for the past 3 years. After he separated he asked if I'd be able to knock out a dining table, even with our newborn on the way, and of course I happily obliged! He only had a couple requirements, but otherwise let me design it how I wanted. When I got the slabs, I realized they were cut at an awkward angle and I wasn't going to get seven feet out of them, so I took a chance and placed the live edge facing inward and added breadboards to the ends. The results are stunning, would you say?! For the base, I knew I wanted something new and fresh, something I had never done, and after a few design ideas this is what I came up with. For the finish I knew I needed something that would last, and that I wanted a perfect satin finish, which is why I used my Fuji semi-pro2 HVLP to spray on General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. I can only imagine the power that more turbines would give, but this finish came out perfect with absolutely no hassle! This is my favorite piece to date, and I can't wait to see what I come up with next!
