The boards of the tables were put together using timberloks. We filled in the nail holes with epoxy putty for a strong and smooth surface.
Then after vigorous sanding, we used 5 different colors of wood stain to create this “aged” looking wood leaving some spots raw, as the amber clear coat will change the color.
We wrote the english word on the bottom of the table in case someone was curious as to what the table said.

We were able to use red, yellow, and white alternating between all tables.
We painted a base “template” of the character before coming in a second time to add a more handwritten “umph” to the brush strokes.
After painting the characters, we sanded them down to make them look old and distressed.
After sealing the bottoms of the tables with amber laquer, we poured a big puddle of amber laquer out onto table so we could get a really good thick coat filling any cracks, holes, or seams left exposed.
Roll it on thick, brush it back to remove any tool marks.
The amber clear coat really warmed up the colors in the table. We came back in and brightened up the whites.
Taking advantage of great weather, we moved the operation outside to help clear coats cure. Then sanded out any imperfections, and added 6 more coats of clear lacquer.
After sanding off any bumps or tool marks, we switched to spray for our final coat of clear.
