Finishing the Fred Flintstone Coffee Table

As a small side project to break up the taking-longer-than-expected file cabinet, I’m making presentable an old walnut slab I’ve had for a few years to use as a plank for a coffee table. For the legs I’ll stack old hardcover library books and keep it nice and simple. No joinery other than the butterfly splines and lots of sanding.

For the finish, I’ve applied a coat of beeswax after sanding it down to about 400 grit. I’ll put on one more coat and let it dry.
