Hey Bubbs – very well done table!
May I ask what sanding process and finish you used?

It’s sanded down to 220 grit, then finished with about 6 coats of Watco Natural. I use that finish a lot, because it is so easy to repair any scratches. Even if the imperfection has to be re-sanded, after a few coats of Watco, you’ll be hard-pressed to see the repair. We have lots of grand-kids, so I choose to take the easy way out.

Wow, beautiful tables ! I’ve been browsing this site for months now & had to join to tell you how fine these look. Did you design them, or are their plans available somewhere ?
