Well these tables are finally done. The finish I decided on was a golden pine Gel from General Finishes with the pre-stain, four coats Arm-R-seal. I really liked that Arm-R-seal. Like I said before, the tables were built for my daughter. She came home from school yesterday and went up to here room and screamed. I guess she was surprised. These tables are the first big projects that I have done. I have learned many things that will help with later projects. Big thanks for all the help passed to me along the way.

Those look great. Don’t you love it when children get excited about something you’ve worked hard on.
