Winter White Glaze Effects End Tables

About This Post

"The tops of these end tables left a lot to be desired. They came out easily and left an inset. I thought this was a perfect time to learn how to apply veneer. I headed to Exotic Woods Inc and they were amazing in helping me! I found a 1/4” birch board that was cut to size and a roll of cherry veneer to match the drawer. I used my t-square as guide and, leaving a little overage on each side, cut using a sharp knife. To apply the veneer to the board, I used heavy duty contact cement. I fashioned a makeshift press (I’d create a more secure one next time!) and, after leaving for 24 hours, realized that a couple of the edges didn’t adhere properly. I fixed using wood glue and clamps with a cloth on the veneer side to not leave marks. I stained using General Finishes Winter White Glaze and sealed with their High-Performance Topcoat in Satin. Using wood glue, I placed the boards in the inset and placed heavy books on it overnight. The frame was painted using my Staalmeester brush (love them) and Annie Sloan Athenian Black. It was sealed using AS clear wax. New gold whistle hardware."
