MAKE A DINING TABLE WITH BOARDS YOURSELF15 July 2020
The dining table, with friends or family, is the central element around which we gather. Here we present a table for 4 people which can very easily be transformed into a table for 8 people simply by changing the top. Or just choose a different tray design to give your creation a whole different look. !
- 2 thick flat iron feet of 71 cm
- 48 screws
- 16 wing nuts
- Drill and drills
- Hand plane
- 4 boards 20 cm wide by 2 meters long
- 2 boards 20 cm wide by 80 cm long
STEP 1 :
Position the 4 boards that will be used for the creation of the table by aligning them perfectly.
STEP 2 :
Position the 2 perpendicular crossbars on the 4 boards then make 16 marks on them before you can pre-drill the 2 boards by providing 16 holes (8 parallel holes i.e. 4 holes per board).
STEP 3 :
Pre-drill the sleepers without doing it on the boards.
STEP 4 :
Position the sleepers on the boards then fix them, taking care to put the sleepers at the edge of each side of the plate.
STEP 5 :
Position the feet to mark the holes and then pre-drill the assembly.
STEP 6 :
Turn the tray over because we will screw in the screws from above the tray so that they are visible when finished.
STEP 7 :
Turn the plate over again with the screws, we will be able to position the foot according to the holes so that the screws match.
STEP 8 :
The wing nuts will be used to fix the board and the feet together. This system allows you to easily change the foot or the platform.
STEP 9 :
We soften the edges with a rasp and a hand plane.
STEP 10 :
Apply the chosen finish, here it is dark varnish and wax.
This table has been created to very easily change from a tray of 4 to 8 people.
