Table Finish??

Question ... Do you apply the polyurathane (sp) to the under side of the table surfaces or just the outer edges?

    I did 1 coat on the bottom and 6 coats on the top

    So I presume you turned the table upside down, or did you apply the finish before you put the top and shelf on? I know this sounds dumb.

    How do you get the sealer between the slats on the top and lower shelf without getting run drips?

    This was a refinish so I just did a quick swipe with a brush on the bottom without flipping the table. I wasn't too concerned how it looked just sounded good to have a coat there.

    Like Pat says, one coat on the undersides is sufficient. A minimum of three on all exposed surfaces. In this case, more really is better. Sand with 220 grit or finer between coats. Wipe off sanding residue with a rag dampened with mineral spirits. :)

    Do you need to drill pilot holes and counter sink the screws since red oak is so hard?
