    The top of the table has been stripped, sanded, and I attempted to stain it using General Finishes Gray Gel Stain. After applying the gel stain and immediately wiping the excess off, anywhere there is a knot it just slides right off as if I didn't apply stain. There are three knots. How can I...

    I'm going to build an outdoor concrete workbench. I'm going to pour the legs/supports first (H design). After they cure, I'll set them into place, build a plywood form on top of them and pour the final workbench surface. The top ends of the legs will fit into the lower surface of the workbench...

    I'm new to this forum as well as to DIY so bear with me if this question makes me sound like too much of a newb. I purchased two custom sized cherry wood table tops with the intent to attach legs myself to create two custom desks that fit exactly right in the space I have. One is 75'' x 20''...

    My daughter is super sensitive to chemical smells, and to make a long story short, her wood kitchen table now badly smells of products used to clean it (Original Pledge, Old English Furniture Polish, and Murphy's Oil Soap.) Trying to remove the smell (Free-n-Clear Dawn Dish Soap and a...

    Hi everyone :smile: I'm new to the forum and DIY as well! I made a mosaic in concrete so its quite heavy piece of art :smile: I was wondering if I could use it as a garden table top. I have no idea how to attach it to a iron table base. Can anyone help? Thanks :smile:

    Hi, I’m making a table out of a 5’ x 10’ sheet of marine plywood. I’ll be using the table for all kinds of things, including serving drinks and food and probably the occasional drinking game. I’m expecting lots of spills, so it needs to be as water resistant as possible. I’d like to paint it...

    I have a 36 inch diameter pedestal table base (28 inches tall). On top of that will be a 60 inch diameter sheet of MDF (3/4 inch) which will serve as the substrate to glue a 72 inch diameter granite table top (1 1/4 inch thick). Do you think I will need more support under the MDF substrate to...

    I've recently started working on stripping and sanding this old, not very pretty, table and I'm trying to think of what I want to do with it after it's ready to be painted/stained/finished. I happened to stumble upon a picture of a table that looked like it had been painted white, but the...

    Hi, I have bought a Pre 1960's brunswick pool table. The owner before me decided that it would look good in maroon (Texas A&M fan). I am trying to restore the table for my game room and need some help. I have stripped the paint and have it down to the veneer. No what?? I want to go with neutral...

    When we purchased our new home my father-in-law gave us an Onyx table without a base. It measures 71" x 30". I was wondering if I went to lowes and bought a 4 x 6 post if I could make a base out of that for my table? I was thinking about creating a box with 4 posts. Should this hold up a 110 lb...

    I'm starting a small project of making a table. I've seen lots of different methods and now I'm torn between which tool is going to acheive the best results for the table top surface. Do I use a Planer Thickener? or will a Planer Jointer do the job without the Thickener part? Also...

    Representin'! I'm an undergrad student at a PSU branch campus. I've only recently gotten into DIY, but I never replace anything until I'm absolutely positive that I cannot fix it. The project that led me to find this place is a table to support another hobby: cooking! I need a waist level...
