The completed console table
Initially thought I was going to be OK with the finish that come with the wood, but ended up hating its roughness, so spent another couple days researching wood finish and eventually settled on Feast Watson 125g Black Hard Wax | Bunnings Warehouse - loving the result!
Next matter to worry about is cable management😅
Had some excess wood so made a dolly for my PC tower. Didn't bother to refinished it but may do that later.
That looks fantastic and congratulations on completing your first D.I.Y. project!
How did you go with cutting the wood? What type of blade did you use and was the finish of the cut satisfactory?
Many thanks for sharing your results as I trust they will be of great inspiration to our members.
I ended up finding out a friend had a circular saw, so I borrowed his. It's a 165mm cordless Makita saw with a 25t blade. I did have to tape the cutting line a couple layers to prevent surface wood splitting at the end of each cut, but otherwise it's very much OK! A few minor imperfections did occur but nothing some wood filler and a piece of sandpaper couldn't fix!
This is a really cool look, nicely done
