Sneak Peeks for June 12, 2017
First and foremost, M has been experimenting with red dye mixed with shellac. More details to come later! Note, this is PINE that he experimented with. PINE!!

I married an artist, what can I say?!
Second and excitingly, our table progress. I'm working on a post that describes pocket holes, but it's taking me some time. Hence, this sneak peek post!

Third and finally, we're still working on putting together a finishing page. We tried some dark cocobolo wood, and it stayed very dark. It has a lot of character, so M wants to redo it to see if we can pull the lighter tones through better. But here's a picture of the ingredients, although he used a lighter shellac than what's being shown here.
