For a beautiful, smooth finish that requires little maintenance I first brushed on two coats of polyurethane to build the finish. Then I smoothed the surface with extra-fine steel wool before spraying on three coats of satin polyurethane. I sprayed the base with five coats of gloss black enamel.
Read the details of the Tweet-Along build in Session 1, Session 2, and Session 3.
Here are some photos of the completed table. It is approximately 38″ x 15″ and 21″ tall. Click on any photo to view it full-size.

The top looks amazing! I love the dovetail inlay.
Thanks for the comment, Judy. Any thoughts on the base?
I like the table a lot. Nature is real hard to beat for looks. As for the base I think I would have reversed it and positioned it so it was level. As is you can’t use a majority of it.
Chris, I really like the table and the concept of a twitter build. Good to see you treading the tightrope between art and furniture.
