This was a refinish, not a build, but the story is fun. I saw this poor table in a pile at the local junk yard and although I had no use for it I had to save it. After putting it back together (I changed the configuration to suit me) and sanding down to 220, the oak came to life. I chose to put a nice Fruitwood finish on it as the wood still didn’t look up to a clear coat. Three coats of semi gloss poly later I was happy with the look. As it sat in shop a friend commented how he liked it and I gave it to him on the spot. The kicker came a week later when he dropped of a DeWalt half inch plunge router and some bits and simply said thanks. You never know what wood can do.
