    Thanks. I learned a few things during the build, and I learned a few more things after the build (like how I should have applied poly properly to avoid lumps and bubbles).

    I was also pleased that one of my hunches turned out: a cheap sheet of temporary tattoos from Amazon can look awfully close to painstaking foil work, especially after you put a couple layers of poly over top.

    Yup, especially when it's your "A" customer.

    Adventures in pine

    My wife asked me to build a narrow, compact coffee table for our conversation nook (see attached photo of the red-painted table for what she had in mind).

    I ended up using pine boards from the local big box store for the build. After cutting to length, I had to invest a fair bit of time just clamping the dampened pieces between cauls to straighten things out, but the end result seems to be okay. It's a little more "rustic" in spots than I was aiming for, but ultimately the customer is happy with the high-gloss cherry-like appearance of the final product, so that's all that matters.
