Charlie and I started building a new kitchen table from old wood we’ve been saving from the house demolition.
Using the wood we salvaged from the old sheathing we made a table top.
We have been using a 2′ by 5′ folding table which is a little too long and a little too narrow.
Because the lumber was 7-3/8 inches wide the full width was determined to be 29-1/2 inches, or 4 boards wide.
We used our Kreg pocket screw jig to attach the boards to each other.
The boards were cut to 41 inches then edged with boards on either end at right angles to the boards, breadboard construction.
The final length is 55-3/4 inches.
Part two: make the base.
Do you have a favorite finish?
