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..
Corner details. Rounded the sharp corner off, with a beltsander. Beading bit in a router for the edges. In this side view, there are 8 plugs, two at the front foot, 6 more along the back corner, as the corners were glued and screwed together. Screws hide under matching oak plugs from the drill press. Raised panels were done with just a hand plane or two.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
