Hi all tomorrow I will use for the first time a grain filler for a table top that should be smooth as glass. They suggest a barrier coat of shellac. That would change the color a bit but can I use a very light coat or water based poly as a barrier coat? Then they reommend a plastic card (credit card) to spread the filler cross grain. I would think stay 45 degrees to the grain so that you do not pull the filler out. Currently the table top has been dye (water) and stained (oil). Any advise would be appreciated. Yes i have scrap and am ready to use it first.
I'm building a small couch tray table out of Red Oak. The top is 3/4" thick and measures 14 3/4" X 24 3/4". I made the top by gluing up 3 boards. The top is not dead flat. If I lay a straight edge across it I can see light in a few spots. I've been sanding to try and get the high spots down. I don't have a planer or wide sander. I loaned my belt sander and it hasn't been returned. I have a random orbit sander but don't think this will do it for me. There aren't any woodworking close by. I'm going to stain and use an oil based poly on it. I've used poly quite a bit and I'm wondering if the self leveling process will help make the top flat?
My new out feed table for my table saw has an MDF top. I am wondering what I should put on the top to seal it? Would shellac or the zinsser bull's eye work? The sides/front/back will be painted, but I do not want paint to rub off on the wood going through the saw. Thanks for the help!
Good Morning Friends, A fellow asked the following; I have a granite remnant left over from a kitchen remodel job, and I want to use it for a top for a coffee table. My challenge is; how do I attach the top to the table frame? I'm guessing that drilling into the granite is not an option. What are your comments on this topic?
Hello All, I am planning a build of a narrow table for our foyer. I have some 5/4 waterfall bubinga that I planned to use for the top and a small amount of gaboon ebony for accents. However for the apron and legs I'm stuck. I thought about using walnut, but figured the ebony would get lost. I then looked at a curly maple but the contrast seemed extreme. What wood would be a good compliment to a bubinga top, that would showcase the bubinga and ebony but also compliment the peice as a whole? Kevin
