How to remove round tabletop from pedestal base?
I need to remove the 48" round solid oak table top from its base so I can take it out to the deck and sand it. In looking underneath, I think I have to remove the screws in the rectangular piece of wood to get the top off. Seems that piece is attached to the pedestal base, right? If that's so, how heavy is this table top going to be? I won't have to pick up it up because I'll roll it out the door (about 4-5 ft away) to the deck on something to prevent damage to the sides. But still, if it's super heavy, it will be unwieldy. Wondering what to expect and if I can do it myself or should I get help? I'm thinking I should ask for help even in unscrewing those screws because they've been in the table since the very early 80s. Suggestions?
