|The water marks on our coffee table were still|
So RMan purchased a cheap electric sander, and
|Sandy work this...|
It took about 3/4 hour to sand off the table. Then it got wiped down with a vinegar rinsed cloth, allowed to dry, and then wiped with a very dry cloth to remove any fine particles of sanding that remained.
|The wood sealer goes on with the small roller...|
He did four layers of wood sealer in total - applying one vertically, allowing it to dry, applying it horizontally, allowing it to dry, and so on, and so on.
|The finished product|
|Before and after|
Whilst sanding the dining room table the sandpaper kept getting clogged up with gunk, so RMan grabbed a wire brush and gently scraped off the build-up, thereby extending the life of the sandpaper - vital when you're running out of it LOL
|Before sanding at the bottom, and after|
at the top. Note the wire brush to
clean off the sandpaper
|Dusty work gets done outside RMan :)|
|The sealer application begins|
So - what does the finished table look like?
|Beautiful, RMan. Well done|
|Stunning, stunning, stunning!|
We LOVE it!!!
By the way, the sander was very economical on our power supply...
|370 watts - that's the total consumption of the|
sander and the MNet decoder and TV on standby
- well within our power capacity :)
RMan loves doing repairs / renovations like this. He has a lot more patience than I do LOL And, with results like that, he's welcome to make a mess (outside) any time he fancies :)
