The table is built from poplar. There are two coats of Lamp Black, two of High Performance Water Based Top Coat, two coats of Red Pepper Milk Paint sanded through to show some of the black. Then Van Dyke Brown Glaze was applied. The whole piece was finished with High Performance Top Coat using an hvlp sprayer. The pictures do not show enough definition but it is by far the best finish I have ever done. Thanks for your great service and fabulous water base finishes! Mike Mooneyham

Jason, as quoted in Woodworkers Magazine, says: "I worked as a polymer chemist, which gave me unique insight into the finishing aspect of woodworking. I don't make finishes, but the chemistry is the same," he said. "I delve into the science behind it." He says he's finding that newer waterborne finishes are an alternative to lacquer. Now my number one finish is General Finishes Enduro-Var.

guess," Jason said.
This was Jason's entry in the Texas Furniture Makers Show in 2012 - beauty in every detail!.

contemporary style, largely because "I do not like to copy
anything," he said. When potential customers approach him about
building something they've seen in a furniture store, "If
they're happy with those there, I tell 'em to go buy it. It will be
two to three times more if I build it. Some people don't understand
