Enhance the natural beauty of any piece of wood with Minwax® wood finishing products. Watch as wood finishing expert Bruce Johnson creates a custom console table by using a reclaimed white oak live edge slab, metal hairpin legs and Minwax® wood finishing products.
Start by prepping the wood for staining by sanding the surface to make it smooth and help it absorb the stain. To bring out the rich character of the wood, Bruce chose Minwax® Wood Finish™ in Golden Pecan to add a warm tone that would enhance the natural beauty of the wood. Apply the stain then wait 5-10 minutes before wiping off excess stain. To protect against everyday wear and tear, apply a protective finish with Minwax® Wipe-On Poly. Shake the can, then pour a liberal amount onto the wood and wipe it on with a clean, lint free rag. After 2 hours, apply a second coat. Bruce suggests adding 3-4 coats to build up the layer of protection for table top. To keep it from drying out, be sure to add a coat of Wipe-On Poly to the underside of the table top as well. Once the surface is completely dry add the metal hairpin legs - and you are done!
This project is just one of many ways that you can reinvent wood furniture with just a little imagination and Minwax®.
