The closest thing you can do is join 2x 1 5 meter tables together as pictured in other combos but this won t fit my space. I love the color of the desk and i am not looking to compromise that just finish it so i can add some durability to it.
I want to stain it grey but i dont have any experience with polyurethane polycrylic liquid glass epoxy resin etc.
Ikea gerton table top finish. That s a personal choice. Stain finish for ikea gerton tabletop i went to ikea yesterday and got myself a few things to assemble a desk including the gerton tabletop. Questions from a beginner trying to finish an ikea gerton tabletop.
The closest ikea is far so i am looking for a replacement of the oil that is recommended by ikea in my local hardware store. I recently finished a gerton top and put it on the height adjustable skarsta frame. The gerton table top comes unfinished meaning the wood isn t sealed.
While reading the instructions that came with it i noticed that it says to apply tons of their behandla oil to it every other day for a week then every 3rd day until it s fully saturated 2 months. I ve got 3 gerton tables on queue at my house. It supposedly quote a bit easier to work with and is much quicker to dry.
Unfortunately they don t offer it in the same dimensions. 2 points 7 months ago. You keep talking about the finnish table but ikea is swedish.
Do the same to clean up the bevel and its chip out. Posted by 1 year ago. Hello ive seen a few posts about the ikea gerton where people apply there finishing touches to the table as it isn t quite finished.
You could definitely stain it to change its color but i personally love the light color of the beech wood on the gerton table top. The table can be moved across the floor without worry because the plastic feet protect against scratching. So i chose to just seal mine also referred to as finishing it.
Screws for fixing the legs to the table top are included. Finish sanding with 240 probably shouldn t go much higher than that then apply the finish of your choice. So i was wondering what finish would be best.
I want to protect this table from water stains and the likes and i would like to use it as my computer study work desk. Start sanding at 150 grit to get a truly even flat surface and work out all the little inconsistencies the ikea fabricator didn t bother with. I was hoping you to replace this table top with the gerton as it has a nicer better quality finish.
I realized the top in the box was not like what was out on the display floor. Hoping ikea comes up with some more versatile size options. I m planning to use a water based varnish.
You can mount the table top at a height that suits you since the legs are adjustable between 67 107 cm.
