    Another day closer. First coat of stain soaking. Probably about 3 more to go before the clearing. 20200531_133133.jpeg 20200531_133114.jpeg 20200528_184553.jpeg

    I built our table a few years ago. I bought the kreg jig for it. I've used that little thing SO many times. ha It may be my favorite tool in my shop. :) Looking good!!!

    Well i finally made it to the last coat. For some reason the 3 and final coat of stain didnt want to dry, just kept a tacky feel to it. Over the last 2 weeks ive stripped off that layer and redid it 3 times. Finally got it to set up and dry. With all that, it did leave a couple streaks that i notice but she keeps saying is fine. Now on to the clear coats....after a vacation first though

    I know its been awhile but I finally got around and got the table all finished up. After after having issues with the stain drying and stripping it back down i really got worried with it. After taking a break though and coming back to it after a few weeks I'm real happy with it. Ended up spraying on 4 coats of polyurethane so that was a big time saver. Now if she will just get it out of my shop
    Not the best pics in the bright sun either!
