Finishing the top

Re: Backwards ()

Jack, toothing deliberately leaves a slightly roughened surface at the end of the preparation. The finished toothed surface does not feel rough, however it is a great non-slip, especially so when compared to a planed or sanded surface.

I add one coat (only) of a danish oil to the top. This is to offer some protection against glue and stains, but not enough to make it slick.

Regards from Berlin
