And maybe some finish on this table?
Went out and bought a few supplies today…..a pint of gloss Poly, a brush for it, and pads for the table’s feet..
Pads for the feet? Yep, I try to add these things to the tables I make. It helps save the ends of the legs, and it saves the flooring. Just simple nail in things.
I just center them in each leg. A few whacks with a hammer to drive them home. Before I did this little chore, I had to make six plugs. Have a Veritas 3/8” tapered plug cutter for the drill press. Seem the have a bit of scrap walnut handy. Watching how the grain goes, I drilled down to make six plugs. They can then be popped out with a screwdriver. Tapered end goes into the counter-bored screw holes. Add a bit of glue to the plug, and drive it home.
I have a decent router, and a small cove/ogee bit. Wanted just a small edge detail on the top’s edge…got a face full of chips, but..
Twice around the “block” and the edge looks good. A bit of sanding here and there. Then back to them plugs, since they were about ready.
Later, come back with a chisel, and knock the excess of, and pare smooth. Seems to make the holes go away..
And with that, all the wood working is done for this table. I turned it over onto it’s top. I brush on a coat of the poly to all the undersides.
A bit sloppy, but I needed a few places I could grab ahold of, so I could put the table back on it’s (new) Feet.
First coat is on, and rubbed down. Just got the second coat where it was needed ( missed a couple spots) and let it cure overnight. That should do it for the Blog side of things…..will post it as a project later.
Thanks for following along. IF you need the measurements for this little table, let me know.
