This project took place a few years ago... in the early stages of my DIYing :) It was my first attempt at building a Dining table from scratch. It was a very fulfilling project and I learned a great deal from it. The idea behind it was that
Recycled Oregon Timber Dining Table
Salvaged Oregon floor joists.
De-nailed and remove any hardware.
Cut to approximate length.
Initial sand and clean joining edges of timber. Then glue and clamp.
Mark out and cut rebate for frame and legs.
Frame fitted and glued into rebate.
Housing for leg to slot into and get bolted into place.
Snug fit :)
Repeat process for all legs.
In this case I chose to employ the use of a timber stain.
Apply stain to legs.
Bolts legs into place.
Legs can be detached for easy transport.
Now its Dinner Time! :)
