Well,at least the first coat, anyway.   Got the supplies today.  SMALL can of gloss Poly, a brush, and some foot pads...

 

Foot Pads?

Yeah, those white plastic Doo-dads you nail into the bottom of a table's legs.   I also routered a fancy edge to the table's top.

A cross between an cove and an Ogee profile.   I also plugged the screw holes, and then trimmed the plugs flush...

Three plugs are there....Turned the table onto it's top.   Time to brush on a bit of Poly Gloss..

A little sloppy.   The real trick was to tip the table back onto it's  (new) feet, without getting anything on ME.

Then come back and "tip-off" the top..

Will have to rub this one out.  Also tipped off the shelf.

Just might do.  There is a hole in the one leg, where there was alot of sap wood?   Turns out there is a knot on the other side of that leg, and the hole goes right through the knot...call it a bullet hole?

 

Will let this dry for awhile, and then see about IF it will need the second coat.   Been a fun project, so far.    Plan is from my Single Brain Cell Sketch Up...never even wrote anything down..

Finish is revealing the beauty of the grain.  Great job.

Is there any other way to plan. :huh:

 

"If I only had a brain.....doo,dee,doo,dee,dee,dee,doo".:P

Now I've got that song stuck in my head.

Maybe this will knock it out,
