Too large for the average
or as a sofa table.
Or should I say it’s
Well THAT’s easily remedied! I took it apart and cut out the center 5½”—20″d to 14½”.
The table suffered while being stored in a basement—the center joint split open and swelled outward very subtly. Not obvious until running it through the table saw. I set the fence to keep/maintain 7¼” on each “half,” but the same split still shows in the center.
I toyed with forcing the halves back together with a clamp and screwing a cleat underneath to hold them tightly together, but I actually don’t mind the split now. Call it CHARACTER!
Now a more reasonable depth to use as a sofa table~which is more likely to be it’s new use! AND you see I stripped that chocolaty paint off the top and left the raw wood exposed –only waxing it.
