« Part 7: Bread board ends, drawer building Part 8 of A Table for the Gazebo series no next part

Once things were sanded and planed smooth..was time for a coat of stain to be brushed on….

Some spots needed a bit more than others…..wasn’t just a plane, or a sander used..

I also gave the Stanley No. 80 a little work. Each of these 3 tools were used where they fit best. Had to clean out the shop a bit….so I could set the table up on the tablesaw, rather a towel sitting on the tablesaw’s top. Wanted to be able to rotate the table, without scratching up the top of the table..

Everything except the top itself got a decent brushed on coat….allow to dry a bit….then wipe down….and let it sit a day….next day, set it down on the floor…

And gave the top a coat of stain. Colour is called “Gunstock”, BTW.

Let things sit a day….sit the table back up on the tablesaw on it’s top. Coat of Clear Gloss Poly was brushed on, allowed to dry overnight. Next day, flip over and varnish the top….

Allow to dry, hand sand with 220 grit, rub down, and wipe off. Then brush on coat #2, allow to dry most of today, rag to rub the top down….calling this done….

Fun part was hauling this up the stairs and out to the back patio, where the Gazebo was waiting..

And that will do for this little project…..will have it posted later, today.

Overall size? stands 25-1/2” tall….top is 3/4” x 19-1/4” x 32” long

Thanks for looking in!
