Update a Butcher Block Table

Today we found a popular table that we have done many times in the past. It’s a great selling piece.

We found this lovely 5×3 butcher block kitchen table with one drawer in really good condition. The first step is to sand the top down to bare wood using 100 grit paper. This isn’t the fun part of the job but is very important to make sure that you get it all down to bare wood. Any parts not fully sanded will not stain leaving a bad finish. Spend the time here really sanding the piece down well.

Next, we used No Pain Gel Stain in Walnut. This product goes on really nice and even. It will make your life easy applying it. Once the stain has dried, we went back and put on Clear Coat in Flat.

Next, we flip the table over and remove the legs. The legs are removed to help with painting completely of the table frame and legs. When the legs are removed you can get the ends and the none exposed areas. This gives it that professional finish when you go to sell the table and they need to remove the legs.

The legs will be fully painted and will show your quality workmanship. Plus it doesn’t add much time to your project completion. For this project we used Drop Cloth.

Next, we used Easy Peasy Spray Wax. All done!
