So at my local pub having dinner went I ask about there very sticky tables. The girl serving us said, yes the table need to be refinished.
So I did some quick sale / talking and landed my first Wood Working job refinishing there 20 bar table. Over the course of this last month I have brought home 3 table at a time and redid each one.
Here is how I did:
1. Strip down to BARE wood / remove everything! Clean up shop :)
2. Starting with 100 or (120 if there not total dented up) up to 220 vacuum between step.
3.Using STEEL WOOL to get into every pore of the wood as this was Oak, again vacuum up.
I used solvent to clean the wood and let dry to see if you got everything off the table top.
4 Start with Wipe On Poly where fill in the wood.
However the out come wasn’t what the customer want for a shine.
So step 5 three brush coasts of Varathane Professional Semi Gloss now we just about there.
To add a little extra I wax each table down before deliver back to the pub
