Wood Kitchen Table - How to Finish the Top?
The rest does not need help...just the top.
Bit of help & direction needed.
Not alot of stains, paints & polyurethane in my basement - so I'd likely be also looking for a "HD" shopping list of recc'dations (LOWES would be just as fine)
A - Sand with ___ grit sandpaper (using Palm Sander)
B - Dust off / wipe down with wet rag / let dry
C - Re-sand with ___ grit sandpaper
D - Dust off / wipe down with wet rag / let dry
E - Stain with rag; let dry overnite
F - Rub down with steel wool (grade of steel wool ????___)
G - Dust off / wipe down with wet rag / let dry
H - One more coat of stain
I - Dust off / wipe down with wet rag / let dry
J - Put on a coat of polyurathane
K - Let it dry
L - Put it back in the Kitchen
This is what I think I should do...but I'm sure it's wrong (or 'misguided' at best)
Anyone have some improvements to my 'roadmap' above ???
Again - will likely only be able to do a HD-type job....(no professional tools or materials at home)
Thank you for your help & suggestions !!!
