I buffed it out using 000 steel wool and some paste wax.
I used 2 scrap pieces along each side to center the legs.
My son and I clamped the top to the legs so it would drift when we screwed them together.
We pre-drilled holes in the legs and then nailed in the feet.
Here it is completely assembled.
Here it is in it's new home. It's a little tall for the 2 year old but he will grow into it.
