« Part 50: Edna's Kitchen Work Benches making the tops Part 51 of Working with recycled timber series Part 52: Edna's Kitchen Benches staining and sealing »

Today saw the tops profiled and sanded, however when I blew all the dust off I found the nail hole filler decided they need to leave as well,

So yet another step required when working with recycled timber is introduced.

I plugged all the nail holes again only this time glued in tooth picks! lets see these little critters get away !

And the second top

While they were drying I turned my attention to the frames,

The tops will be attached to the frames using pocket hole joinery so I preped them first.

They were sanded and checked for missing filler again and then stained.

Enough for today: Next will be a second inspection and if all is OK complete the staining and then the final finishing
