Top Construction & Oil Finish | The Big Finish | Sideboard Pt 11

Wood Whisperer - Sideboard Pt 11

As the Sideboard Series comes to a close, we’ll embark on the Top Construction & Oil Finish. The top is really just a large walnut panel. I like to use Dominos to help keep the panels aligned curing the glueup though the same thing could be achieved by using several sets of cauls. The idea is to keep the boards as even as possible so that it limits the amount of work we need to do after the glue dries. After the top is fully scraped and sanded, I added a small 1/8″ roundover.
