I am assuming that no stain was used but you did seal with the Rustoleum Polyurethane pictured? Give us details on the finishing steps.
For finishing, I sanded everything with progressively finer grit until everything was sanded with 220. No stain was used and yes, I used the polyurethane pictured, I just applied several coats to make sure everything was protected from water damage as much as possible. That's all there was to it.

tomfromstlouis Really nice. Stands truly are furniture and it is nice seeing one made like quality furniture using real wood.

Great job!

That's double Cool, there will always be that Father/Son memory associated with that stand.

AUvet14 Well it's actually a hobby of my dad's. I'm in veterinary school. He helped me a little with building it, showing me how to use the various tools and basic cabinet construction, but I designed it, told him what I wanted to do and he showed me how to go about doing it and let me do it. It was pretty fun building it. It definitely helped having the guidance of a skilled woodworker though.

DogFish Very nice! Is wood work another hobby or your profession?
