The rooms to go tables we purchased had glass tops the kids kept beating themselves up on, so i got the go ahead to make some wood tops for the bases. It was kinda like watching birds fly into glass windows except it was 20 lb toddlers.
I picked up some walnut for the job. Unfortunately it was the last of pallet they had open so they let me pick through the boards no one else wanted. A lot of sap but still useable.
Walnut planed, stacked and stickered
The benefits of picking through everyone else’s leftovers
End table 1
End table 2
The coffee table has a lot more sap than I wanted but it’s ok I guess.
Used some spar urethane from another project for the finish. Just wiped it on 4-5 times and finished with a spray coat of satin to even everything out and a couple coats of lundmarks paste wax. Screwed them onto the bases and done.
Not much too it but thanks for looking.
