Garden Table

tinfoilhatDecember 6, 2012

I saw a table like this by a gal in Oregon and it led to the Dancing Crane I made. My DW saw the Dancing Crane body on the welding table and decided she wanted a table made like that for her reading spot.
21" tall and 21" in diameter with built in cup/can/bottle holder. Made from the junk on my welding table.

Who do I talk to about my check for product placement?

Here in AZ my biggest problem is getting the rust started. I usually throw my things in a stock tank after welding to get rust started on welds and grinder marks. If IâÂÂm in a hurry because somethingâÂÂs a gift I spray it down with acid diluted with water a few times then soak it. I donâÂÂt put a rust inhibitor on most of my welded things.
I did put a coating on the table to keep my wife from giving me the eye every time she brushed her cloths against it. I used Flood Penetrol and just brushed it on. You can get it at Home Depot and most paint stores.
It doesnâÂÂt give it a wet glossy look like a few things I tried. The table is now darker than the above picture and looks like the color the table would be if it was just rained on.
The few things I have tried this on lasted a few years with out needing any additional touch up. I have no idea how long it would last in a humid wet climate like Florida.

I live in NW Florida, and I use any clear coat.
Like rustoleum-
I have to do it about every 2 years.
