Some of the best pieces of furniture ever made are wood crafted. Wood material has been in existence for centuries, and that’s why it’s the most used building material for making furniture and cabinet.
However, wood material is susceptible to moisture, insects, and damage, so it warps and wears out without protection. For a wood tabletop, it even gets worse due to frequent use.
For this reason, you must seal it. Sealing a wood table involves many processes, such as sanding, brushing/ spraying with a specific varnish or product on the table, staining (this is optional), etc.
Seeing these processes may make you feel that sealing a wood tabletop is challenging, but it isn’t in a real sense. It’s not so complicated, provided you understand the steps and the nature of the finish you are applying.
Most finishes, if not all, contain certain chemicals and natural products like acrylic resins, which seal and protect the wood. I’ll discuss several ways on how to seal a wood table top successfully.
