    Dining Room Table Recycle

    Just about completed this 'recycle' project . . . a dining room table that I had built for us in the early 80's. The wood is 'rock hard' maple, therefore it would not take much stain then so I sealed it with Tung Oil back then.

    A couple months ago Missey wanted new chairs and that started the 'recycle' project. The chairs are black and Missey wanted the table stained to match her hutch . . . I wanted to get rid of it.

    The table was loaded with challenges above and beyond staining. Front to back the top was cupped ~ 3/8". The two leaves were warped and twisted.

    The one piece top was cut into four pieces and sanded front and back to 'true' them up once again on a drum table sander. New side cuts were then made and the four boards were glued into a solid top once again.

    Leaves and extensions were sanded to match the top's new thickness. New pegs were installed in extensions and leaves and set to 'true up' their seams once assembled.

    Multiple coats of General Finishes oil base Nutmeg stain were basically painted on the maple to achieve something close to the color of the hutch. https://generalfinishes.com/wood-fin...sed-gel-stains

    Then multiple coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Oil Based Topcoat with light sanding between coats. Arm-R-Seal Urethane Topcoat | General Finishes

    The bottom/trestle of the table was painted black with General Finishes Milk Paint. https://generalfinishes.com/wood-fin...cts/milk-paint

    All General Finishes products were A++ for the project and 'highly' recommended.

    Missey is "Very Pleased" . . . so I'm a hero.

    The table must cure for a couple weeks before general use.

    Checkout more pictures of the project if interested.

    Thanks Stan, it looks pretty good for the mess it was in . . . and I need to get here more often as I really miss keeping somewhat 'up-to-date' with you 'frequent' posters.

    I tried the link to the photos from my GTT post and it works fine . . . So I'll keep trying to find the issue that you're experiencing.

    I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing the same problem?

    No Marlin. It asked me to sign in with a Google Account. Honestly, I do have an account, two actually with the business, but I didn’t sign in. I was merely complimenting to pic in your post.

    Okay . . . I think I fixed it . . .

    This one and the one in my original message are now the same and should now work.

    That works for me, and it’s beautiful. Mrs. CP has a sturdy dining room set that she’d like replaced (it’s dark pine and probably 40 years old, came with the house), or renewed.....Just sayin....the commute would be brutal!!!

    I hope all is well with you and Carol, and your whole family

    ColonyPark ~ Thanks, Missey and I are pleased, it was a lot of work and time, oh the time. We made three trips to BIL's place so I could use his tools and experience . . . three hours round trip each. And a couple trips to the woodworkers store for advise and product, 40 miles each.

    Experience is the best teacher and I now have a little at building a table. (I have a spring build project planned for the red oak lumber I now have drying in the kiln I built. I'm hoping I can get one nice 'farm table' out of the lumber.)

    Yea, wish you were closer, it would be fun I think. You never know what you're going to find with 'recycle'. Building from scratch with new wood I suspect would have been easier for us . . . But this table has sentimental value for us and it's now a very pretty set with the new chairs.

    And yes, we are both doing well for old folks. Oh we've got health issues like everyone else both we're determined to not let it get us down if we can help it.

    Family is well except the youngest little guy Josh is running a fever and is not feeling well.
