After the table was stained, I first put vaseline in spots on the table base and legs as I describe in this post.
Then I painted with white paint on top, in a bit of a rough way, not being concerned about covering every bit of wood. The vaseline stops the paint from getting through to the wood. Once the paint is dry, I just rub away the vaseline and the stain shows in those parts.
Here is the underside of the table with the Z clips that I often use. These clips are essential to allow for wood movement in the top (the clock part). I wrote more about that here.
Here's another view of the finished clock table:
Now, you didn't think I'd only make just one triangular base did you? I made another quite different table with the same base, I'll post about it soon.
