Topic tags/keywords: wood table finish high pressure laminate tips

Hello,

I have a wooden table that I made myself; it has never been painted and comes from a tree stump. I let it dry for two years and is now ready to be polished. I would like to know what are your tips and consiels.

I would like it to look a bit like one of those high pressure laminate finishes. I think it’s possible; just put some color and luster, but I do not want to do anything. Some have already done the project?

Here is the table : https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/p98w5t5.jpg!

Thanks!

I am guessing this will be an INSIDE table ??

by ~ is now ready to be polished – do you mean sanded down smooth and a clear finish applied ??

Since you dont want to do anything, what exactly is your question?

If you want to fill the cracks investigate epoxy, and there are various fillers or color that can be used to decorate the cracks. I assume you want a wipe on or brush and not a sprayed finish. For wiping or brushing, oil based poly. How much will it be used? A thin wipe on film finish will work well for light use, but a thicker, brushed film is needed for heavy use. I use wd lockwood oil based dyes mixed into poly to add color – works very well. Can add to this if interested.

Have your say...
