Restore Table
« on: February 03, 2020, 08:00:42 PM »
Guys,
Iím on a hunt for a nice price of wood to make a replacement table for my kettle.  In the mean time looking to fix this up?  Anyone ever think of putting truck bed liner on the table?  I got a high gloss one?

Hi there - someone has replaced the table with a wooden one before. Check out the link below (you may have already seen this tho).

Never heard of putting a truck bed liner on it!

I've been debating that too. Line-X or Rhino Linings seem to be willing to spray anything, but I wasn't sure about the rough texture. Or, I didn't know if it would be any more cost-effective than just replacing it with one of the newer metal Performer tables. I do love the results that others have gotten with wood, but don't have the tools yet to try my craftiness. Definitely a future project, but that's why I'm thinking of going with a relatively lower cost solution.

I always assumed that fiberglass stuff some people would use on a car body would work well, but I don't have any cracked tables.  Beside that their regular version, Bondo also had a fiberglass resin version.  I'm guessing you could even find something similar, not specifically for autos, & it would probably be less expensive because it is not geared towards a specialty market.

Let us know how it works out, longer term, if you think about it anyway.

Hope you donít need to sand again. I really like the black on the table.

Looking good so far.  I sprayed the bottom of the OTP with bed liner too since I toss all my accessories there
