Aside from my ramblings on time, which I think is a rather interesting topic, let me give a brief update on my DIY projects (see previous posts if you're lost).
My square mission-style teak table has been coated twice with a stain called Bombay Mahogany. It looks fuckin' great! When I would first put the stain on, it would be too dark and shiny, but after I would come back from work and see the stain seeped into the wood, it looks really different. If I had a digital camera, I would have posted some pictures to share, but don't have one, so you will have to imagine. The color is so rich and dark, yet has as a colorful streak with red tones. So my first DIY major project is starting to be a success!
Now all I need to do is add one or two more coats of stain to darken it more, maybe add a satin varnish/polyurethene to protect from water marks, and screw the table together. Doesn't seem to bad.
Stay tuned for more of [start television music] Jigsha's DIY stories!
