|My new custom cutting table|
I'm going to put my ironing board along the backside of it. It's 2 feet by 6 feet so it's the same length as the table. It's also the same height. I need to replace the cover on it this weekend.
The cutting table wouldn't fit up our stairs in one piece, so my husband built it to be modular. He finished with the construction in early September, but it's taken since then to get it painted. We used an oil based enamel paint that required 24 hours drying time between each coat. I sanded between each coat as well. Each piece needed 4 coats; however, we had a plethora (love that word) of kamikaze gnats that kept diving into the drying paint and messing up the finish. I've lost count of the actual number of coats of paint this table received, particularly the table top. In any case, it meant that it has taken a lot longer to finish than expected.
