Finished Bench

Pictures of finished bench. I coated the bench with 3 coats of Poly-Acrylic, this is a great cover. Glue will not stick to it (don't wipe glue off, let it dry and use chisel to pop it off). After each coat I sanded with 400 grit sand paper. I used a cabinet scraper to get top very smooth and flat. I did a final rub down with 220 and 400 grid sand paper before I applied the finish. This is really only to get good surface for Poly to stick to.

Some views of the finished bench.
