"Set the jig to the actual dimension of the wood you are drilling into.   In this case, I would attach the apron to the legs (and top?) using the apron's actual thickness (you state 1", is it actually ¾"? )  The jig…"

"The aprons & legs are on a vertical plane. Top is on a horizontal plane. Light play off these planes differently. The apron for example will be in the shadows of the overhanging top. Make a quick mock up with some scraps & stain both pieces…"

"More than likely just the poly Brian. You'll break the top coat finish,, it lays on top of the stain,, when it comes apart. The stain is actually in the wood so you "should" be fine there."

"Brian, I's take apart, when the loose joint meets--- remove the old glue--- reglue it and clamp tight. Use cawls to avoid bowing."

"Yea the only reason I'm thinking stain is to match up everything else in the room, but if I did clear it would definitely make everything look uniform ."

"Danish oil, clear shellac, clear poly, etc. I'm not a big fan of stains in things that I do - probably because I can never seem to apply it and have it look like I had envisioned. I also like being able to see the character of the wood,…"

Brian fleming replied to Brian fleming's discussion 'Card table'
"I would really like to do the top in a dark stain. Would the table not look right if I did the aprons and the legs in just a clear? And by clear do you mean like a Danish oil or something like that ?"

"I would think that they would absorb the stain at a different rate, resulting in darker or lighter coloring between the three.  Is finishing in clear an option?  "

Card table

Going to be building a card table the table top is 150 year old read oak . The apron is 50-75 year old oak . And I ordered red oak turning stock on line for the legs. My question is when I go to stain everything are the tints going to be drastically different ?

"Easy fix. Cut 4 boards as long as the top is wide. Place one set,, these are called cauls,, over/under on each end. Clamp them tight. This will draw the bow out on the ends. Inspect the joint carefully & place more cauls where they are needed.…"

Don Foley replied to Brian fleming's discussion 'New project rustic barnwood bar top'
"Brian, Since you did not glue the planks together to form the tabletop I suggest removing the bowed piece, drilling new pocket holes and before re-installing it use cauls or some other form of  forcing the bowed board flat.  Then reattach…"
