I make a pair of black walnut tables with hand-cut dovetails for a client and show you  how to finish them using Waterlox, which is my go-to finishing product for fine furniture.

Here are the tools you’ll need to make hand-cut dovetails. I used 5/4″ x 8″ black walnut for these tables.

The walnut tables finished with 4 coats of Watlerlox.
