Pews Project 2

table_top_out_of_clamps_4.jpg 

Shown here is the table top after being taken out of the clamps, cut to size and sanded.  The next step was to laminate narrow pieces together to give 100mm square legs. This is shown below.  The joint lines between the laminations actually added to the deliberatley rustic appearance of the table and no attempt was made to hide them.

After making the legs the stretchers were cut to length and all of the dowel joints made prior to assembly. Using the Dowelmax made very short work of this and every joint fitted perfectly.

All o fthe pieces were sanded and the base of the table assembled ready to receive the top. Corner braces were added for additional support.

Finally the top was fitted and after several coats of lacquer and a rub down with wire wool dipped in wax, the table was finished.

The table was finally installed in the customers dining room and fitted in fine with the character of the building.
