For use instead of sanding?

Came across somebody using one of these instead of sanding, apparently they make really big ones to do table top sized boards. Never seen something like this, similar to veneer making I guess. May be of interest to somebody ;)

Re: What is a durable but natural looking finish for a Walnut dining table?

I just tested this stuff and found it too matt for me, maybe its exactly what you want ? you'd want the version called pure... If its been made for floors I'd expect it to be pretty tough... http://www.rubiomonocoat.com/en/p/products/interior/3-protection/colours-and-protects-in-1-single-layer/15-rm...

Application of it, use a little as possible using lint free cloth wipe on till absorbed in direction of grain. When dry do the same again until several coats have built up to lustre you require.

Re: damaged table leg

I agree with the repair method, but expect missing material, not keen on filler. Its not a huge job to remake legs and rails, most of work making was in drawers and internal framework. Think the damaged leg is at rear so could be an option though!
