Saw sharpening is one of the next skills on the list to acquire. But
luckily the rip saw I used was sufficient.
The stain for the top is an Amish stain, which isn't commercially
available. I then topped it with 3 coats of Arm r seal Oil based glossy
polyurethane. I sanded with 220 between coats. It almost came out like an
epoxy pour. Was very happy with it and it should last a while.
