I am finally finished my shuffle board table. I was asked to re-finish a table that had been in the cool, damp basement for about 15 years. I thought, why not, I have re-finished dining room tables, furniture kitchen cabinets.
THIS one took awhile. The boards were cupped, I was able to rescrew and straighten that. Some boards were separating, I was able to fill that. I was able to get the table level both directions, the top was smooth and flat.
I applied several coats of poly. Put some wax on it and….....slow as heck.
I tried another type of wax…....still pitifully slow.
I told the people I would not quit till I had it the way I would want it to be.(MY TIME to do this, I WILL NOT CHARGE for something I was learning how to do)
I finally stripped the floor wax OFF and applied Canuba wax. I have given it at least 10 coats, polish,buffing each time. As we play the game it seems to be speeding up. A person told me that when you re-finish a table it will take time to get to speed it used to be.
