I absolutely LOVE the finish on this, thank for sharing!!! For the estimated cost you put $100, is that without including the cost of the turned legs? Did you get the legs through Osborne? I think I NEED to make this coffee table and use that finish!

Now that you brought it to my attention you are absolutely right, I completely forgot about the cost of the legs. including the cost of those, it does come to $200 dollars, ill change that. I also did get the legs from Osbourne. As for the finish yes do it! I am really happy with how it turned out :) thanks again and let me know when your coffee table is done so i can check it out!

Cheers,
Justin

This is absolutely beautiful!!!! Quick question... You said you used weathered oak and special oak for the stain. Did you mean special walnut? I can't seem to find special oak! Thanks!!!

Being as yours is much lighter (and i like it more than the darker). Did you use the wood conditioner and how long did you leave the stain on for? it almost looks like once it was on you were wiping it off. Love it well done :)

Also, do any of you guys use the paste wax when finished? I was thinking about following the stain with some poly to seal it. any suggestions?
