Welcome back, I hope you all had a great Saturday!! I know I did!
Today my dad and I finished building our kitchen table. It turned out nice, and I wanted to share with you guys how we created it…
First, we planed the cherry wood -for the top of the table- (my dad cut down the trees himself)
Notice the uneven boards? Using wood vice’s we pulled the boards together and screwed the main ones down.
Next, we cut out two pieces of cherry about 41 inches long (the width of the table is 41 inches)
“Why did we put those extra pieces of cherry wood on end?” To help pull all the boards together and make fewer cracks in between!
After that, we sanded and sanded and sanded and sanded…and sanded some more!
And we are done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The table is 8 feet long, 41 inches wide, and 31 inches tall.
Cherry – for the top of the table
Pine- for the legs, braces, and frame
Cost – around 45 dollars (for the screws, wood putty, polyurethane, and cutting the logs into boards)
Time – 2 days
I hope you guys had fun watching our table being built!
See you guys soon!
Note: We did use ear protection and glasses. My dad oversaw any machinery I used. Also for the sake of my stomach and taste buds, I did not eat any wood.
