  • Finishing question: how to replicate the surface on an Outback restaruant table

    I'm going to be making a dining room table--and my wife wants it finished with a surface that will last over a million years... like the tables at the Outback restaurants. A few questions: 1. Will this be 100% waterproof, and 2. How to do it? I have a HVLP sprayer which will let me spray about anything, just need some insight as to what stuff, and how many coats?

    Also, I'll be using a hidden butterfly wing that will fold in on itself, so I don't want it to stick together...

    Thanks!

    I've never been to Outback, but you can give Woodworker's Supply a call @ 1-800-321-9841 I'm sure they have what you are looking for.

      Good suggestion by Mr.FUDD. I did a google search and found a listing on ebay for used tables from outback. I think you might be able to ask what they are finished with, my guess is multiple coats of some urethane based product? Let us know what you find out. Frank

        2 part epoxy finish. You can get it online. They also use it a lot on bars. Oh yea, it's expensive and makes an incredible mess. You mix both parts and then pour it over the table top.

          Yup, that was exactly what I was going to say.

          Here is just one product I found on google using the search term; "two part epoxy for tables"
