43" Rustic X Coffee Table

This was my first build of this Rustic X Coffee Table and I really liked how it turned out! This one was modified to 43" long, same height and width. I love all the Rustic X pieces in this collection! They have been a favorite.

I finished the table using black tea, steel wool and vinegar, followed by Minwax's Dark Walnut stain and topped off with a Satin oil-based Polyurethane.

Great work on the table. Was the tea and vinegar step not get dark enough? I was just wondering why you added a dark walnut stain afterwards.
