I'm about to start making a small table that is going to live in the bedroom. It's primary purpose will be to serve as a desk (and, in fact, it may grow up to be a desk someday) for my laptop computer while my mother-in-law is here for a semi-extended stay. She's going to be probably alternating between living with us and my wife's sister's family a couple hours away until the waiting list ends at some sort of senior living facility (I think it's more like an apt. with extra accessibility features than a nursing home - I'm limiting my question to when is she here and for how long at this point). Anyhow, my wife wants me to have a place to retreat to, so that is the main purpose of the table.
Wow, I'm getting long winded here.
Anyhow, my finish of choice is Bush Oil, which is a one third each blend of BLO, tung oil and urethane. Will this hold up well to the heat of extended laptop use and sweating beverages?
The top is going to be Merlau walnut - I'm sure everyone here knows that this is one of the fancier, more select kinds of walnut that one can find.
