My fiancé is living in the basement apartment where we will both live after we get married in May. I made some benches out of pallets for our reception and then got the idea to make a table to hold our microwave, George Foreman etc. it is made out of mostly used wood from crates and pallets. There are a few finishing touches like putting a good finish on the top and attaching the top shelf to the table top. I am going to put in some metal dowels as well as some angle brackets with screws so I can remove the top later. If anyone has an idea of what to put on top for a finish that will seal it all up and protect it from heat and also food spills, I’d love to hear them.

This is really nice, Kevin! Great work! Out of interest, I’m assuming you stained it that shade – what exactly did you use?

I actually just used a couple of cans of spray paint that I had in the garage. I’m not sure if that was the best idea. I’m pretty new to this whole thing. Should I have used a primer first? Or do you have any other suggestions?

Wow, spray paint? From the picture it looks awesome – like really old dark oak. I’m afraid I can’t give you any suggestions on finish or anything because I’m new to this too! Keep up the good work – I’m sure if you ask on the forum someone will give you good suggestions for finish. Very rustic looking! Well done
