alder table top done
Let me know what you think
Good looking Top ! Mind telling us how you secured the trim pieces and the middle board.
Middle board kreg jig from the underside
The outside is glued and has a recessed screw about every 2ft
Then filled the screw hole with a dowel
looks great, and like the way you capped the sides and ends. Very Professional touch and adds a finished look. nice
Nice job on that.
That’s a sharp looking top!
Nice! What's the size? I bet it is heavy as heck too....
9 ft by 4 ft
All using 8/4 alder
..... the girlfriend wants everyone to know she has been the “muscles” in helping me lug this thing out of my garage since it’s final glue up...... she made me write this
YOU GO GIRL!!!!
Very nice table and thank godness for her muscles. You keeping table for yourself or heading out to someone else? Can't wait to see what you do for a base on this thing.
This is made for someone
He is a metal fabricator so he is doing the base and they just built a house so the contractor is gonna finish the table to match their cabinets
I’ll try and get final pics
Great looking table top! Talk about a stable platform! Chuck
Sounds like a cool project for them. Hopefully we'll be able to get some final pics. I have been wanting to do a table with a similar Edge treatment as you did, what kind of things did you have to do to ensure it doesn't push apart the joints with expansion and contraction? I've been struggling with that and I'm not sure how to overcome it. Any insight you can give to that would be much appreciated.
