Hell has just froze over.wood shavings said:I agree with Al about the finish there are other options that will give it a better appearance. Problem with poly is that it will show the first ding that comes your way especially with the dark stain and if it a scratch it is hard to fix with out making a big project. Might try BLO or mineral oil both are easy to apply.
+1. :yes: Some are as durable as oil base polyurethane or lacquer. Oil base may not be cured when delivered. Clients aren't too dependable in keeping up with an oiled finish.Poly is an excellent choice for a table top. It's durability is hard to beat. Water based will dry much quicker. Save the non drying oil for cutting boards.
