This table has been collecting dust in the attic for 20 years. Thought it was time to get a finish on it.
Was a lot more fun than I thought it would be.

Nice. By applying many coats of whatever to the top, can you harden it up a decent amount compared to its natural softness?

This burial was originally perched in 1975 in northern cal. So I’m not sure if that it is a root burial or the age but it was not that soft to start with. I put on six coats of rub on poly and another 4 coats of past wax. the top seems very tough.
