Lots of sanding and some Oil

Great day today, although I got too much sun. I sanded the table legs with 80 grit, then 120 grit, then 180 grit, then 320 grit paper. After all the sanding they looked like this

After this I couldn't resist giving them some oil. I'm using a cherry tinted danish oil, which is the same finish I used on my cabinet. It gives walnut a nice deep redish color. Applying oil to nice wood is one of life's great pleasures.

They got two coats of the oil. I expect I'll give them one more coat after everything is assembled.
