Multi wood table
« on: January 18, 2017, 04:33 PM »
I am building on office work table out of 4 different woods. (Wenge, Jatoba, Padauk and Walnut). The woods are all intermingled and I'm wondering what single product to use to fill the pores. I'm thinking of using Watco Danish Oil Natural as a finish, but would appreciate your ideas concerning this choice, or, if you would recommend something else.

Thank you!

Aquacoat or Crystialac.

I like Waterlox.

Hi, all. We've had several family issues that delayed me finishing up the table for my son, but finally got it done. Attached is a picture of it. I used Crystalac for a filler and Arm-R-Seal. Thanks again for the suggestions!

An inspiration to those who use second hand timbers and/or have too many off cuts.
If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

Thanks. It did take me quite a while to come up with a pattern that I liked. There are 35 different pieces of wood and I used 125 dominos. Glueup was mad much easier by using the dominos for alignment, but still pretty challenging for me!
