Constructing the Table lop

  1. First cut two short table trim pieces (H) from 1x4 pine, each 9 inches long. Then cut two long table trim pieces (I) from 1x4 pine, each 49 inches long.
  2. Carefully set the laminated table top (A) upside down on a level surface. Now place one short table trim piece (H) on edge at each end of the table top (A), as shown in Figure 5. Use glue and three 1-1/4-inch-long screws to attach each short table trim piece (H) to the table top (A).
  3. The long trim pieces (I) extend over the ends of the short trim pieces (H). (See Figure 5.) Attach the long trim (I) to the table top (A) with glue and screws. Use 1-1/4-inch-long screws spaced about 6 inches apart.

  1. Set the completed table top onto the leg and shelf assembly. Make sure that the table trim pieces (H and I) rest on the legs (C) and that the table top (A) is supported by the long leg reinforcements (E).
  2. Glue and screw through the long leg reinforcements (E) into both the long and short trim pieces (H and I) to secure the table top. Place two 2-inch-long screws in each of the corners.
