Patio Table Touch Up

My Ipe Patio table is about 12 years old or so. In that time I have touched up the top a couple times, yesterday was one of those times. The process is pretty quick and simple. I use my random orbit sander with some 80 grit, a few light passes and the years of weathering and grime are whisked away. A fresh coat of Penofin and its good for a few more years.

    @KMS Woodworks great job! Wish you did table crashers, our neighbour has one like this on their back deck which has become a real eye sore! Hmm maybe I should print your blog and leave it in their mailbox LOL Thanks for sharing.
