Cork Top Table

This is a great way to restore a scratched wooden table with a new surface of 1/2 inch cork . Make it look new again

How to:

Measure tabletop; cut piece of cork to size. Lightly sand table surface. Using a foam roller and a metal paint tray lined with disposable plastic, roll contact cement onto back of cork and tabletop. When glue becomes tacky, line up cork precisely at two front corners(contact cement is very unforgiving) and press down.

Tack on wood molding with mitered corners, using 1 inch brads. Seal cork with butchers wax.Use masking tape to protect tabletop edges; apply 2 coats of semigloss paint
