New Arrival in Store!
We recently started carrying hairpin legs. They are a great way to quickly make a sturdy and nice bench or table. Espically when paired with a great slab for the top. We made a small bench that's on display in the store to provide a bit of inspiration!
Step 1 -
Planed top was sanded to 400grit:
After a careful cleaning, 2 coats of Satin Arm-R-Seal from General Finishes were applied, hand sanding lightly with 400 grit after each coat dried completely:
After the second coat was sanded, the top was cleaned VERY thoroughly. We mixed Arm-R-Seal 50 - 50 with mineral spirits to thin it. That was then used to wet sand the top with a 2000 grit abrasive pad using a random orbit sander on a slow speed. After sanding the top was wiped clean and allowed to dry.
Then we attached the legs.
Happy Building Everyone!
