Like wampus said, a couple days sitting in sun like that and it will be good to stain!

Great job!

Umm, I just bought the cheapest option myself, the 10" HF Compound sliding miter saw, and just finished up a little kitchen woodwork. I also invested in a finish grade blade for it, worth every penny. I am inspired to do a few other things I have been meaning to do. First will be a cornhole board set, then Maybe a table like yours just for a little prep area in the backyard.

Sounds good :) Maybe I can get away with staining it next weekend. It's been sitting out in the sun for two days now. We have some rain in the forecast for the next three days starting on Sunday but the rest of the week currently looks clear and it can get some more sun.

I bought the 12" version prior to building a shed. I've used it a few times since and having something like that is GREAT!

Another of my favorite power tools is a 4 1/2" Makita angle grinder. (My son has the HF version and I do not recommend it!) I've found a lot of uses for that.

BTW, nice work on the table. For a first project it looks very good. It took me a lot longer to get things to look like that.

Yup... I bought a 4.5" angle grinder at Walmart (Skil brand) when I built my UDS. I have used it for several other projects since then as well and I'm glad I have it around.

As for high quality tools, I'm 100% supportive of buying that stuff, but in my case, I didn't want to spend a wad of money on something I'm not sure I'll be using that much in the future. If future projects dictate a need for better equipment, I'll certainly upgrade.

Nothing wrong with buying crappy tools from HF if you don't plan on using them often. Using the tools to make a living is a whole other story.

Very nice table for a beginner. Since were talking tools, get a metabo grinder, will smash anything else. That said i use a HF grinder, last one i had lasted me 7 years, just bought another the other day. And the only tools that come with replacement brushes.

I put some finishing touches on the table today...



I stained the table with the Cabot's Australian Timber Oil in the "Mahagony Flame" color...



I constructed a table end handle for moving it with a couple half inch floor flanges, street elbows, and a 24" piece of black pipe... primed and painted that and then screwed it on to the end of the table...



When I found this on Amazon, I simply could not resist :)
