Nice looking table and it looks sturdy too!! :-D
I like popular wood. Since you have used wood conditioner it should stain real nice. (if you choose to stain) I stained before sealing the wood once.....don't do that!!!!! It bloched up so bad that I had to paint it. :D :mad: :oops:
Anyway, I sure would like to see it after the finish is on and hear how and what you used. :-D

By the way, welcome to WWA! :-D Hang around awhile and enjoy the "family" and teach and learn more about wood working! :-D

beautiful piece-- I really like the "heavy apron" look. We had a similarly proportioned coffee table (the aprons were slightly arched in the middle) in my living room when I grew up-- I spent many many hours playing with matchbox cars underneath and on top of that table.

I'm curious how did you attach the top? If I remember the bottom of ours had metal "figure 8" shaped screw attachments. I know now what they are for but had no clue (and to be honest didn't care that much) back then-- they were just cool and I still remember the flathead old-fashioned screws that held them in place and the deep holes (great for hiding jolly ranchers) that held the bolts for the legs in place.

Again, thanks for sharing your project,
Lawrence

Looks great, Joe! I, too, like poplar, even when it's stained.

Hi All,

Thanx for looking and all the comments. This place ROCKS!!
One coat to go, I used a satin poly.
Any recommendations after the final coat?
Have a great day
Joe

Very nice Joe.

Not sure what to say on the finish. I use wipe on finishes. If your first coat worked out well, perhaps you should stick with what works for you.

Lookin GOOD! :-D

I use poly alot, both satin and gloss. Usually, after the first coat, I sand (wipe down) with 400 grit paper to get the bubbles and nibs out before the second coat and then repeat for each additional coat if I do anymore. Some times, I like to put on a coat of Johnsons paste wax and rub the stuffins out of it with a regular old red shop rag (they have enough tooth to further take out any scratches or imperfections) and then buff to a sheen with a cotton hand towel.
Finish just takes so much time but, it's usually worth it in the long run. :-D
