    Great instructable... so I I made this... or I'm making it. Or them. I need to finalize the cleaning and then finish with polyurathane.I used Jpg photos.

I had two pieces where there wasn't enough plywood left so they are narrower. I found that after it was dried, and I wet the paper, I could peel off the first (otherwise messy) layer by lifting from the overhang. Does that make sense?At any rate, thianks for this instructable. It made me, my granddaughters, and my terriers happy. My wife, not so much. She wants the dining room table back.A
