Finished table, after 10 coats of tung oil on the top, 4 everywhere else
This is my first woodworking project: a black walnut Nakashima-inspired coffee table. My wife and I wanted a Nakashima style table, only to find they are quite expensive. With some instruction from my father-in-law I worked on practice pieces before each step on the actual working piece. I am happy to say I did everything myself. I did a lot of research and wanted to replicate the process that Nakashima went through.
"Have been a return customer for a number of years, and a recent experience has really cemented that bond for me. After using my Rockler lighted magnifying lens for a few months, one of the wires from the battery pack came loose. When I contacted Customer Service to inquire about sending the unit back, they instead sent me a brand new one - no questions asked, no return expected, no charge whatsoever. This simple step - coupled with top quality, innovative products - ensured my repeat business more than any other advertising technique or gimmick could ever do.
Keep up the good work, Rockler!" -
