A couple of updates on the Desk

by dave on August 27, 2012



August has been exceptionally busy @ Juniper and soon, I’ll be starting to lay out some of the work I’ve been doing in public.  Until that point, however, you’ll have to “suffer” through the ongoing process that is my desk.  To that end, I’ve got a couple of videos for you to spend some time with so that you can see what’s been done and where I’m finally getting to after all these weeks.  Hey, if @drjmetz can work on his Willys Jeep, I can work on my white walnut desk. ;)

First, we have the post-sanding wood conditioner being applied.  For this, I used Howard’s Feed-and-Wax which combines orange oil, carnuba wax, and bee’s wax together into something resembling a paste.

Next up, we have the application of the oil-based polyurethane gloss.  I’m probably going to have to do about 4 or 5 coats since butternut (aka white walnut) is incredibly porous.

As usual, helpful feedback and polite commentary are appreciated.  Tech is coming SOON!!!
