Thank you for the posts.

Jerry, when I say QSWO edging I mean a border. Probably a 1”-2” wide border of oak because it could take a little more abuse as compared to reclaimed fir. The Fir will be flat sawn only the edges will be quarter sawn.

JBrow, I think you might be on to something with the fastening system. The old tables were just screwed to the base with no allowance for movement. I will take this into account with the new tops.

My original thought was to coat the bottoms with a cheap poly to save time and money. However, now Smitty has me wondering if it is necessary at all. I always heard that you have to coat both sides equally until now.

Smitty, I sure like the idea of not finishing or at least not using the Enviro-tex to finish the bottom. Thank you for sharing the article. I will look into this further.
