Waiting for the good stuff

Here are a few more shots of the French-style coffee table after adding one more coat of stain (three coats in all) and two coats of Wipe On Poly. I was going to leave the stain the way it was, but noticed a couple of smudges (probably from my fingers) and decided to slap one more coat to even the top out. I think the wood looks even richer now.

I'm bringing it to the shop tomorrow afternoon. Sadly, I still have not bought any new furniture. Today I dropped by Goodwill and there was nothing but junk. I may have some luck on craigslist but that all depends on whether people get back to my emails. Hopefully I'll have a dresser and a chair or two coming to me soon. Until then, I'll catch up on everyone else's blogs to see what they're working on!
