Blondie wondering where her wine is…..
To those of you have been following and helping me thanks a million. Well, I finally finished our Walnut/ Granite outdoor table today. Just in time as my parents from Michigan will be here in Southern California Fri morning. Mom has been dying to see it, so the pressure was on. The finishing process was a long. I used Epifanes boat varnish from Holland. It takes 24 hours between coats although I found 48 hrs. to be better in between wet sanding. I applied 10 coats as recommended. We un-wrapped the new chairs today and had our first glass of wine out there. I’m glad to be done, although it was a fun project from the beginning. Welding up the frame and cutting the granite and making the table was great as I just learned how to weld. I also learned how to make bow tie inlays as well. I sanded up to 2000 and the top is like glass.
I thank all of you for helping through this adventure. Thx for looking.
Hope you like it, and all comments are welcome.
I have 9 part blog if you are interested in this.
