Peaceful night in the shop. Haven’t posted much detail as I’m chugging through to make the deadline. 
This is W. D. Lockwood black dye. It will take a couple passes to reach most of the the deep grain. I’ll leave some of the grain open for the look we’re after. This raises the grain, so I’ll apply a light sand, then apply an oil topcoat to warm it up a tad.

Been a whirlwind of a couple days but I’ve got all the pieces planed, thicknesses, joined and about to begin cutting each piece to size and then on to the joinery. -

Breaking down the all the pieces. Taking the Dave Ramsey approach and knocking out the smaller piece first. This will all be red oak.

Next project begins now. The black bookshelf will be blackened red oak, the media cabinet will be maple. I have a little over 2 weeks to deliver these. The pressure is on.

Couldn’t post any progress on this project since it was to be a gift. Repeat clients are the best.

Making some dowels. Anything up to 3/8” I can fit into my pencil sharpener for a leading edge into the dowel plate. #handtoolthursday -

This board was sanded to 220. An acceptable grit for finish. But it could be better. Here’s how scraping can make this figured walnut pop even before the finish is applied.

The leafs will attach to the ends of the table through the apron. The threaded knobs will hold everything in place. Installing the threaded inserts to the underside.

The table top construction and sanding is done. I sealed the bottom and it’s drying. 
Working on the leafs now. One leaf has a split, so I’m stabilizing it with 3 butterfly keys. 2 on the top and one on the bottom. It’s amazing how strong these are.
