Customer gave me a fake $100 bill (1 Viewer)

I’d figure an upscale chain like Johnny Rockets would already have contracts in place for stuff like this.

Be sure to sell him on the undercoating. Its a real life saver and worth the extra money. At least thats what my car salesman said.

No way is refinishing worth it on those. 

I would rather cut new wood and replace the wood, polying it after 
I’m pretty sure a nice dark stain would hide those oil stains.

Cutting and replacing wood wouldn’t make sense when you could just buy new tables cheaper than the material and labor costs to do carpentry on them.

 
That looks like teak. Be sure to use an evaporating solvent just before varnish or the natural oils in the teak may prevent the varnish from drying and it could remain tacky for weeks.

 
Has OP rejected all sound advice in favor of his own preexisting plans yet?
It’s really up to the owner. If he wants them refinished and looking nice I can do that for the right price. This far I’ve not seen any suggestions that I could make the final decision on.

There was a suggestion that I do one table as a test which I did bring up to him and he agreed to.

I’ll find out what kind of wood it is. Would the two coats of stain and two poly coats both remain tacky?

What is this evaporating solvent you speak of?

Really just the poly is at risk of tackiness. For this application, I would stick with naptha, toluene, xylene, or maybe mineral spirits or denatured alcohol.

 
I was thinking of it more as a quick little cash job.
Well, with all the questions you are asking here, it seems like a real big deal. 

I really think you have all the information you need. Time to move on and start the work, big guy.

 
What happened to the thread that you were supposed to be living in? That seems to be the appropriate place to release your big news.

I am sure your new opportunity will work out well, as usual.
That’s where it will be revealed since it’s a significant life event.

This thread is just about a quick gig .

 
I was going to reveal this in my main thread but it seems it’s been deleted due to inactivity.

Can any mod confirm or anyone find it?

 
I’m not sure the dong cartoons are really appropriate for a children’s book. 

(This is the dong cartoon guy, right?)

 
Hmmm.  There seems to be a wealth of information available on the Web for the proper care of Teak.

As for illustrating children's books I hesitate to think of your drawings.  I suppose all of the characters will have very prominent jugular veins and will all be wearing helmets.  Maybe not.  Maybe you will be the next distinctive style that others will emulate for decades.  Best of luck with this.  No reason it cannot all fall in place for you
