My fiancé is living in the basement apartment where we will both live after we get married in May. I made some benches out of pallets for our reception and then got the idea to make a table to hold our microwave, George Foreman etc. it is made out of mostly used wood from crates and pallets. There are a few finishing touches like putting a good finish on the top and attaching the top shelf to the table top. I am going to put in some metal dowels as well as some angle brackets with screws so I can remove the top later. If anyone has an idea of what to put on top for a finish that will seal it all up and protect it from heat and also food spills, I’d love to hear them.
