I’m working on the table top now and have already glued up the trestle base.
Finishing questions: (Planning on using Waterlox for the first time,)
Would it be easier to keep trestle base and table top separate until after finishing, or attach top and finish the whole thing at once.
If kept separate, would you finish the bottom of the table top and then wait, flip it over, and do the top later, or . . . .???
Just thinking of order of operations, knowing I’ll do multiple coats of Waterlox (wiping on), want good access to the different sections to finish, and want to keep the dust down in my garage.
The hard part is done—I made 6 Maloof style low back chairs with the Scott Morrison plans, and now making the table. I used the Rockler—Maloof finish on the chairs.
