1950's Lathe Table Refurbished

December 27, 2019

Found this 1950's homemade lathe table for sale.  My son-in-law and I split the cost on it; he took the lathe and I took the table.  

Here's what I did to it:

- Sanded the entire piece.  Distressed the original mint green paint to satisfaction and heavier sanding on the top.

- Reinforced legs with L brackets for stability.

- Applied a generous amount of wax bar soap to the drawers tracks and rails foe smoother operation.

- 3 to 4 coats of polyurethane.

- Mounted a hotel grade lamp with usb port over the lathes belt drive hole.

BOOM!  Done!

The foyer table is about 5' long and a perfect match and fit for my kitchen prep area.
