Topic: Best worktable finish
Posted: Sunday, July 08, 2012 11:10:26 AM
I was planning on doing it over the summer. I hope to have everything all freshened up by the beggining of the school year (my dreams also include making all the lockers the same color instead of about 6 different colors, do not think thats going to happen this year though). The only reason I was thinking about trying to go with the floor sander is because there is quite a bit of material that will need to come off the tops to really clean them up and the floor sander will move a lot quicker. I may just give the belt sander a shot first and see how well it goes.

How many coats of the poly did you usually go with?

I am looking to refinish my workbench table tops in my classroom as I have been told it has been several years since it has been done and they are fairly beat. A previous teacher told me they used to rent floor sanders with a course grit (around 40!) to sand the table tops down real quick then refinish.

I was wondering what everyone thinks the most durable type of finish would be for the tables?
I believe the tables are maple. It is a middle school classroom where the students use wood burners and hot glue guns which has lead to the majority of damage to the table tops.
