This is the project that started my woodworking hobby. A friend found a small table at a yard sale for $1 and gave it to me to be refinished. As far as tools at the time, all I owned was a screwdriver. I went out and bought a sander and a scraper, and began stripping the old finish off. After many, many days of sanding, a coat of stain, and a few coats of polyurethane, it turned out quite well
