Rhoda, somehow I missed that step too and now have to repaint the top of the table. Luckily, it’s a really small table. This was an excellent post! Do you know what happens if you paint something with ASP and don’t use wax? Love the color you used on your table! I have a cool black trestle table with ladder back farmhouse chairs with linen cushions. I have a cool sewing table that also serves as a buffet that’s currently ugly country blue (the kind they used in the 80’s) Wondering how orange would look? Do you think it would too much like halloween? This set is in my finished basement.

I started with a tea wash on it, to bring out the tannins of the wood since I wanted the table to be darker. let that dry then 2 coats of the vinegar/steel wool, drying inbetween then sanded lightly and topped it with 2 coats of Varathane clear satin finish. The handmade extension picture is at dried vinegar stage -here is the back side, opened and closed. I’m hoping to be completed next week.
Goddard died of throat cancer in 1945, never seeing his dreams of space travel come true. His work was taken up by American and émigré German scientists to produce the Redstone rockets that sent the first Americans into space and, in 1969, placed man on the moon. It prompted an apology from the New York Times: "Further investigation and experimentation have confirmed the findings of Isaac Newton in the 17th century, and it is now definitely established that a rocket can function in a vacuum as well as the atmosphere. The Times regrets the error."
