This fall I built a trestle table for our dinning room. I needed to
get it into the house before winter (which prevents any finishing, due
to the cold). So, I put one coat of urethane varnish on it (please, no
comments about urethane, it's a dining table in a house full of kids,
it needs a urethane!), assembled the breadboard ends and brought it
Then I had a horrible thought!
When summer comes, I have to add more coats of urethane. How can I do
that while preventing the finish from flowing into the gap and
freezing up the breadboards. All I can think of is to mask off the
wood and force some furniture wax into the slot first. I assume that
would keep the slot free to move.
Is there a better way to rescue this one?
