Pleasant Feedback

Every now and then I get a nice note regarding my efforts to lead us into taking a giant step backwards, or at least move forward confidently with personal skills.  I don’t really need the validation, but is is certainly pleasant to receive.



Just wanted to give you an update (and some evidence) on how your historic finishing course alumni are doing.  I built a new kitchen table to my wife’s spec; had to be smaller than the old “teak beast”–but big enough to seat 6–and it had to look “farm-house-ish.”  See attached.  Finish is four coats of Waterlox (Medium Gloss).  Leaf-stowing design is from a Tommy McDonald Fine Woodworking article. Any confidence I felt on the finish work is from your course.  BTW; Mel’s Wax performed very well on this piece.
