    Thank You so much for your comments Wonderwoman.

    I take alot of pictures and only end up with a small percentage of keepers. The little hummingbirds do seem to pose. I have a feeder outside the window and they will sit on a branch of a nearby tree and guard the feeder. I just take pictures out the window. The secret to bird pictures is just getting close.

    As for the lamps, I have been making them full time for about eight years. Beginning to get a little tired of it sometimes.

    Thanks again,

    Heather, I am sorry, I have had that magazine lying out here for several days. I see it after I get off the computer. I have re-read the article and it is primarily about how to apply. Does not have any information of potential used such as around food. I have never personally used these and therefore have no knowledge. I do know that tables made with that type of top are frequently found in restaurants. In the bar at the Eglin AFB Officers Club we have a number of them with various insignia embedded in them. They seem to hold up well to all the use they get.

    Sorry I could not be any more help.

    You just need to do a lot of sanding to get down to the bare wood. Then sand to a nice fine finish ,like 180-220 grit, and apply some primer two coats if needed, then two or three coats of finish paint. this will last years and years. Remember dont be cheap on the paint you choose. its your kitchen. I'm sure you use it a lot, buy some very durable paint and it will last forever!!!!

    Hey Wonderwoman,

    I read your apolejetic post about not introducing yourself first.

    Just wanted to let you know that I blundered in here and began posting. I have always regretted not doing an introductory post, but I think it's to late now. They haven't r-u-n-n-o-f-t'd me yet.

    This is a really great forum, Welcome,
