Don't mind the dog toys...
First, I cleaned and disinfected both tables very well. I went through a whole roll of paper towels just to do so -- that's how dirty these tables constantly were. After the rock was dry, I brushed on one thin coat of polyurethane to each section. I applied a second coat about an hour later to ensure that the tables could survive a good beating. The result: Sealed slate that is still impervious to heat and liquids.
