Yeah, well, OK. But the angle showing the darker solids in the grain
looked pretty bad in that shot you ref'd.
The next thing you know, you'll be -filling- the poor, innocent pores,
too. And smearing on poly. <shudder>
I taught you better than that. <bseg> & <gd&r>

The prefinishing is what I didn't do with my trial sofa table. Real
stupid, but a lesson learned. I didn't glue in the spindles, nor the
strips that I inlayed into the rails. Those strips have small dados that
receive the tenons on the spindles. Since it is all contained between
the rails that are kept in place with dominos in the legs, it is Ok for
the spindles to have just a little play ... I made this from left-over
wood, pine and fir (??). It is contrasting, but I'm not thrilled with
the combination. But then, it is going to stand behind the couch and is
invisible unless you lean over the back of the couch.
Thanks. Where there's a will .... use the Multi-Router to do the floating
tenon mortise first, and my old Delta hollow chisel mortises to cut the
exposed tenon side about 1/2" deep only. Basically it's a floating
tenon/plug. Actually had four left from a previous job, and although the
grain doesn't match, the only one complaining will be C_Less.
