I sanded the top, bottom, and legs with 60 grit and then sanded the top to 120 this afternoon. I would say it took about 90 minutes total. I then blew it off with my compressor and wiped it down really good. I then put first coat of Outdoor Spar Urethane on and I am very happy with how it came out. I plan on putting one more coat on later tonight and 1 or 2 more coats tomorrow. Once that all dries then I will mask it off and paint the legs during the week.
