Filling in the cracks

Oh my days seriously I have never sanded so much in all of my life I went a bit crazy with the wood filler and not only have I wood filler stuck to my fingers and nails but abrasive sand paper burns all over ouch! I guess its the price you pay for a silky smooth table. Its taken me two days to get it level and all filled in so that is where I have been for the past few days. 

Here are some pictures of the table with huge cracks.




In action.....

Sorry guys I don't always look this messy when I sand "honest" I had to pose for this picture I was told off for sanding too fast hence the camera couldn't keep up with the speed. Look at those white knuckles! the fake tan was clearly rubbing off.


Sorry this isn't the best quality of photo the flash was playing up. So I managed to sand all the excess filler from the surface and all cracks had vanished. I am now in the process of painting the table I will keep you up to date on this project. Hope you are all well.
