Quarter sawn white oak pedestal


Recommended Posts


2 of the panels have rabbits. I trimmed the other 2 slightly so the pedestal is a square. A couple of screw holes that will be plugged.



I needed 2 more hands or these helpers.


All glued up. Next I will do a little sanding then make the base.

No work on this tomorrow. I have a double root canal. Anyone want to stand in for me?

Thanks for watching.

The finish is Waterlox transparent sealer. I like this finish for low traffic areas. It could be used as a sealer with one coat. Too many coats of this eventually will be a problem. In time it can get gummy with too many coats. When I use this finish I give a can of wax. The finish over time needs wax 2 to 4 times a year. Client always knows this in advance   there is modest maintenance (waxing). I suggest semi gloss General oil sealer for no maintenance. I like the Waterlox better in the right situation.
