I’ve had this unfinished table in a corner of my garage for quite some time. I’ve been dying to get at it just to be able to finish something without having to scrape or sand it first. A clean slate so to speak.
She’s got great legs.
This is the table top propped up on my work bench. A four seater without any leafs.
The amazing feature of this table is, it doubles in size when the 3 leafs are attached.
It is operated by crank so that you can single handedly open it up.
I am finishing this table to match the Early 20th Century Hutch I previously finished. The color used here was again Heirloom White.
My personal custom mix of glaze has taken me very far indeed. I’ll be sorry when this mixture is all gone.
Using the same stain as the Hutch I gave the table top a coat after a good sanding and cleaning.
All three leafs stained. You can see how large this table becomes.
The top was varathaned with two coats. Make sure to sand well between coats of varathane allowing each coat to completely dry 2 days. Table tops get daily, harsh use and should be protected well against watermarks and deep scratches with a very tough finish.
As much as it disappoints me, I couldn’t get this in the house to take proper pictures. It was just too big. It stopped raining for about 3-1/2 minutes in 2 weeks to allow me to take these pictures outdoors.
I believe this table will certainly compliment the hutch that goes along with it.
Many thanks to the awesome people who eagerly picked up both these items.
