So how many of us change our plans as we go along on a woodworking project. I would think the majority do for any number of reasons. My initial thought for this project was to put an epoxy bar top finish on it. After my research it would cost me about $150 for a quality product. Scratch that idea and lets go with a poly finish. 8 coats of poly, then wet sanded, followed by two more coats on top and the top is done. The folding table leg hardware that was on the original was broken, so off to Lowes for some new hardware, and easily installed in an hour. A bit of elbow grease polishing up the old brass corners and screw heads, and installed in an hour. The final touch was just a bit of red paint on the bolt heads which are used to hold the table legs in place. Project done. Now I’ll give it away as a gift.

Thanks for looking.
