~or should I say take 3 ?
–the 1st and 2nd of my Loooong skinny tables–
Awww, that’s it now for the wonderfully curved, double corner freebie table legs.
I was in the antique mall trying to figure out which way to shift and shuffle things to fit in this 2nd table—but someone bought it on the spot! I left with the cash in my pocket—a GOOD problem!
Saturday I pulled more legs from my stashes, another of those super long pallets and got to work on a “replacement” table.
*I was hoping to take you through the steps of making this but I didn’t get the best step-by-step pictures. Sorry. I WILL come back to that if you’re interested. Tables are really easy to make!
I DEconstructed another looong pallet, selected which boards I would use where and laid out the table top (good side down).
–In the picture above–
#1- I used a framing square to mark out an overhang and location of the legs AND clamped it down as a “catch” to hold each leg in position while I screwed them into place.
#2- Each leg was secured firmly in place with “pocket screws” from the two inner sides.
#3 and #4- The aprons were glued, tacked in place from “underneath,” and screwed in on an angle to each leg.
Same methods for the long aprons. AND I added center cleats for extra support.
