Create 2 tables from 2 of the spools left behind when the electric company redid the electric wires last summer.
Step 1. Move spools from storage to garage.
Step 2. Sand the top until it is clear of markings.
I started Friday evening and sanded the tops with a coarse sandpaper until midday Sunday. Then I went over the tops with a very fine sandpaper.
Step 3: Continue sanding with fine sandpaper.
With the tops clean and smooth and the edges slightly rounded I was ready for the next step.
Step 4: I cleaned the dust off the top.
Step 5: Stain with MinWax Special Walnut.
Step 6: Varnish with Bar Top coating.
I need to let the varnish dry until tomorrow. Then I can go onto step 6.
