Something every home needs is a family dining table and today we're going to be building one with a bit of a twist we're going to make a deep family dining table out of reclaimed timber using the reclaimed timber. It's fantastic because it has a bit of earthiness. A bit of character and really helps ground the space. The great thing about this project is the legs are all per-cut at Buntings and we repurposed some reclaimed timber for the top as we're using reclaimed timber for the top.
The first step we need to do is to clean up the edges, so we get a nice square edge to glue together. The next step is to glue it all together, lay out your clamps like the timber on top glue, the edges. Now we just need to use a chisel to remove the excess glue cut the edges of your bench, top square using a straight edge and a circular saw using a belt sander stand back the top of your tabletop, the more you send the smoother it will be. I'm now going to give it a wax. This is going to protect it and enhance the colors the timber.
The theme before our legs has been per-cut at Buntings. We need to send it back to give it a nice finish and remove any marks. It may be on the wood to construct your legs pilot hole, countersink glue and screw. Now your legs are assembled, we're going to give them a finish. You can finish them anyway. You wish we're just going to use a stain on air, and here we have our two completed legs for our tabletop. All we need to do now is attach them to our tabletop fix your legs to your table, using bolts, drill, a pilot hole through the leg into the table and then through.
So you know where to drill your countersink hole. The cam sinkhole will hold your copper head bolt 50 table over and slide the box up through the bottom and slide your legs into place and secure them with nuts. I will use four bolts per leg, one on either end until in the center for strength, and there you go a six feet, wooden dining table with the top made completely out of a salvaged tin box, I'm going to go, find a spot for it in my house.
