    Bubinga Bowl

    For two years this piece of Bubinga has been sitting around after I received it as a Christmas gift from my youngest daughter. Only two inches thick, I kept wondering what to do with it so finally I decided on a shallow bowl. Wow, I like Bubinga's grain...

    Natural Edge Bubinga Coffee Table (w/pics)

    My wife saw a natural edge coffee table (walnut I think) in a magazine and asked me to build one for her. She asked about the time I had just finished my desktop and I had a what I thought was just about a useless piece of wood at the time because of its shape and because it was very warped...

  10. BCT22 - Countertop with High Gloss Finish

    BCT22 - Countertop with High Gloss Finish

    The final coat of Rockhard Tabletop Varnish with its high gloss look. While it looks great, the surface was contaminated with small bits of hardened varnish from a less-than-clean brush. And the customer decided they wanted a satin finish versus this high gloss.
  11. BCT24 - Satin Finish Top

    BCT24 - Satin Finish Top

    The client wanted the varnish rubbed out to a Satin Finish -- three hours of careful sanding to remove the "nits" with 320 grit followed by 400, 600 and then 800 grit. Compare with BCT

    BCT21 - View from the Kitchen

    The countertop sits right behind the kitchen sink and its stone backsplash. I sealed the 1/8" gap between the backsplash and the Bubinga with clear silicone caulk.

    BCT20 - View from Dining Room

    Here's a view from the Dining Room looking toward the countertop and the kitchen. The reflection off the drywall below the countertop is from Lexan I installed to protect the wall from being scuffed by careless feet sitting on stools...

    BCT18 - Moment of Truth!

    My key issue was getting the 3 angle supports at the right height and coplanar with each other and the top of the stub wall (it was -- thanks to carefull use of a 4' level when installing the vertical members!). Less than 1/16" error which was taken up with a bed of clear silicone caulk on...

    BCT17 - Bracket Closeup

    The angle piece tenons were glued and the top support dovetail pin lowered into the tail cut into the vertical. When seated, the brackets were at a perfect 90º angle and the tops flush with the top stud in the stub wall. I drilled holes into the far side of the horizontal and vertical members...

    BCT16 - Brackets Installed

    After making careful saw cuts through the existing chair rail, the uprights were attached to the wall using a pair of 3/8" x 4" lag screws, hidden under the angle bracket when installed.

    BCT15 - Rockhard Table Top Varnish

    Here's the varnish -- Behlen's very durable short oil varnish -- impervious to about anything.

    BCT14 - Top with First Top Coat

    Both sides and all four edges were sealed with two coats (sanded with 320 grit and tack clothed) and then a final top coat of varnish -- one more to go!
