Finishing Up The Top

lew

423 views

With the base finished, all that was left to do was trim out the top with the walnut edge trim. Glue, clamps and some pin nails.

 

I forgot to take photos of the top to apron mounting system but this Sketchup drawing should explain what I did. These are simple wooden clips with their tabs captured in slots that run around the perimeter of the inside of the aprons. The slot is 1/4" wide by 3/8" deep. The clips are cut from 3/4" thick maple and the tabs sized of a snug fit in the slots. Screws are used to secure the clip to the top. The hole is slightly over-sized and the screws are the type used for pocket holes- nice large heads.

The church members are going to apply the finish. If they send a picture, I'll add it here.

 

Thanks for following along and the very kind comments that have been posted along the way.

Well I didn't read about the table before I condemned the lip around the top. I thought there is no way I could use a table like that in my shop . Not going in your shop I still want to ask, why the lip or whats that thing sticking up higher than the middle called ??
