    LAST coat, more sanding than I wanted to, more epoxy than I thought, advice for others : do NOT apply West Systems epoxy unless indoors, or at least 10 hours of sunlight 2A77287D-D206-40CD-8834-FFC2F193A537.jpeg 4FFD32AC-F7F7-4E63-94B8-89EA27B87C77.jpeg 022D761D-3CCF-46A8-B543-6E19051E9907.jpeg 7E690CF3-4B18-49E9-91CB-F9FB870BD2F4.jpeg 01B71A16-0987-4723-AAC6-DF0B61D59685.jpeg

    Thanks for the kind words men !!

    Crazy how in the direct sunlight the table appears orangish/golden, but in the shade or cloudy it’s more brownish 354A376B-72CA-4C7C-9EBF-97ADAAE72222.jpeg 0DEA26BD-9EF9-4A28-A60A-888F73531ED8.jpeg 16969194-C760-48CC-8126-3D7941678158.jpeg 90974A31-938C-47DB-AF75-74B9A7127564.jpeg

    I still have to trim the ends and give it one more quick sanding, then a final clear topcoat with some UV protection. Finished length will be just over 11’ and 90% of the table is over 50” wide

    Made a few boards for the trailer. Old ones were quarter inch plywood and pretty worn out. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    As soon as it dries out, put something on it to protect it from rot.

    Put some new Shag Bark Hickory handles on the wheelbarrow and used Watco Teak Oil to protect it.

    Will see how it holds up, but should be easy to touch it up when needed.

    Also got 16 Butternut Squash from the garden today. Still have a couple of green ones one, but these looked ready to harvest.

    Lol. Yes. But I think it gets absorbed into wood.

    Almost all of the products claim that.

    Spar Urethane and Epoxy both look good and hold up very well in doors, but there does not seem to be many products that let you see the wood grain, but hold up outside.
