FWIW, I restored a table over 17 years ago for our kitchen. When it finally got inside the house it was/is still used daily, although it had several years of exponential abuse while three children grew into adults. Two of which are girls so there were nail polish and nail polish remover accidents. The table is a late 1800’s QSWO split pedestal table with 4 leaves that can seat 12. I finished it with WB poly from a blue can I bought at the HD, and applied it with a brush in several coats and lots of sanding. I’m sitting at the table now and while there are a few dents and dings from the last 17 years the finish is fine and does not have a “plastic-y” finish. Since then I’ve gone over to spraying with my HF HVLP guns and still have good success with the same poly out of the gun, without needing to thin. I suppose if I did go to some of the higher end products I might kick myself and call myself a fool but for all of these years I’ve gotten good results without any real PITA processes or expensive products.

just my $0.02, Nice shop space and a nice build, is that a PSA sign in the back with the crossed cannons?

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
