excited to be almost complete on my new table. It's been a blast building this
thing! I used Naked Whiz's design with a few mods here and there. I sure hope
my 15 inch clearance from the top of the shelf base to the top of the table
base is correct. I have a new spring hinge egg. It's sitting on firebrick the
top of which will be about 1/4 inch above the top of the shelf and will then
sit on the little green wedges that come with the egg. With all of the wood
glue I used.... there's no turning back.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I'm finishing the table. I have not yet screwed down the slat boards. I have
put one coat of Helmsman’s Spar on the entire frame top and bottom and on the
interior edges of the slat boards just as Naked Whiz did. My question is how
many coats are you guys putting on of Helmsman Spar (or a similar product. I
was thinking 3. I want it to be as weather resistant as possible. Do you put
three everywhere including the interior edges of the board and underside of the
table? Please let me know what you think.
