A light rubdown with steel wool and stuck the top on with construction adhesive (historically correct?) and the table is finished. If I had to do it over again I probably would lessen the overhang a bit on the slab so the egg and dart would be more visible, but overall I am really, really pleased with it. Projects like this are how I will continue to develop my carving skills.
In the next coming weeks I will attempt to get some nice photographs that show all of the details of the feet and the carving. So be patient with me until then. It is difficult as many of you know for me to get a good picture inside at night.
I want to thank all that have commented, posted, encouraged, complimented, asked questions, or otherwise participated in this thread. It has been a long haul on this table, I started cutting wood in April or May, I think. And I want to thank T-Mac for setting up such a great forum for "serious" woodworkers to share and discuss what we enjoy so much.
Please feel free to ask any other questions. AND...get your projects and play by plays done too! Thanks, Cal
