Table

30 September 2014
Pulled the table out and brought it home for refinishing. Since it's made out of the same wood as everything else it seemed like a good test piece for the interior. In the picture the small piece is the table leaf, which I am going to leave off, untouched. The big piece is the original table top, refinished with some work to do still. I sanded until almost all the grooves and marks were gone, then smoothed it out. 5 or 6 coats of Deft Clear Wood Finish later I like the results! Still have to round the corners and make new trim.

About:
I got a boat in the first place because cruising is a family thing. I have many, MANY good memories of sailing that involved my uncles, my grandparents, and the good people at VYC. My crew is my family, and anybody else who decides to come along. [...]
Extra: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
