This hand-me-down dining table was in need of an update, especially after the new puppy took a liking to the table legs. The entire table was stripped with Citristrip Stripping Gel and cleaned with Klean-Strip after wash to remove any residue left from stripping. A light sanding was given to the entire table. The scratches and chew marks were filled with Rockler Wunderfil before the gel stain was applied. Three coats of General Finishes Java Gel Stain was applied, followed by five coats of General Finishes High Performance Flat Topcoat, a light sanding was done between each process.
