A buddy of mine came to me for some help in making his dreams come true. He had recently lost his kitchen table, and just could not find the right replacement. Enter SuperDave…..
I went down to my favorite hardwoods store and found a pile of discounted 3/4″ MDF with a white oak veneer. I chose this over cabinet grade plywood because this solved the issue of the exposed grain around the table edge, and would produce a more consistent finish after routing. Before I left, I had the store slice up the rough cuts so it fit better in the truck.
Once home, I preformed the final cuts by setting up my handy aluminum channel fence, and using my skillsaw with my clearance hardboard set-up seen in other projects.
With the pieces cut, I used some remnants to erect the shelves in freespace which helped average out any misalignment incurred by trying to build something square on my sloped garage floor.
