i learnt an awful lot while making this,i ended up making 5 legs and 5 aprons because of silly errors .i really got to understand grain structure and how mortises needed to parallel .layout is so important.i really enjoyed this and hope to make the same one as the current project.

thanks guys,i used 3 coats of liberion sanding sealer(shellac) for the aprons and sides i gave the top 2 coats and then 3 coats of danish oil i sanded in the second of coat oil with 400grit wet and dry to try and fill the pores. i gave it a coat a clear wax after a few days .not an expert on this just experimenting really.i love the natural look and finish of shellac .polyurethane is the best protection you can put on wood from my research but i think it just gives a plastic look.the thing i like about shellac and wax is if a project does get beat up there’s no drastic operation needed like toxic varnish removers and belt sanders.
