So, you want to make a big table and you want to make it :-affordable-sturdy-long-lasting-
You came to the right place!
This method of making tables is quite simple and requires the use of large power tools and some time, or the use of smaller power tools and a lot of time.
More about this.
At the end, you will get a table with a half on it
Rustic look, but very sturdy, and most importantly highly customizable to suit your desktop depth, length, and height needs.
Determine the total length/width required for the table.
We have 6 feet centimeters long and 36 inch wide in this table.
I chose to use 2x 4S on this table, but you might want 2x2 s or something thicker like 2x6.
I think 2x4 s is a good combination of cost and firm fastness.
Since you will laminate your 2x 4S face to face, determine how many 2x4 s your width will require.
I need 24 in my case
36 inch divided by the nominal width of 1.
5 inch per 2x4).
After selecting the wood raw materials, cut them into the same length (
About 1 feet older than the time you eventually need).
The advantage of a slightly longer inventory can be used is that when you glue later, the end will not stick, and you can choose to cut 6 inch on each side.
Arrange all your 2x4 s in the order you want.
Make sure that any major defects are faced in the same way (
Unless you want to expose an interesting defect; I didn\'t).
Glue 2x4 s at a time and add 2x4 for each existing adhesive row until it reaches 6-7 minutes (
Or no matter how fast your glue starts to stick.
I can work with about 12 people at a time.
Remember, if you are using a large planing machine (
I will show it later)
, Just make each tablet as big as your shaved bed opening!
Make sure your sticky boards are as flat as possible on the surface and end and clamp them!
I use pipe clamps because they are very cheap and their length is only determined by the change of the pipe without having to buy brand new pipe clamps.
Note that I tend to clamp on the alternate side of the plate.
This is to balance the pressure applied on each side.
If I put all the clips on one side, it might form a bow on my slate.
I\'m not entirely sure how important this is, but it\'s safer than sorry!
Take this opportunity to wipe away all the excess glue and make the next step of planning easier.
Wait a night to make sure the glue is fully set.
Now that you have a huge plank, you should probably make it into a table!
There are many options to flat the surface of this body in white.
In our local makerspace (Yukonstruct)
We have a 20 inch planing bed so I chose to use it.
You can use the hand-held electric planing bed at any time, or even the router fixture settings for eternal suspension planning.
Come up with your method, but try to stay away from manual planning. . . . just saying.
Once you have reached the thickness you want and the tablet is smooth enough, it\'s time to cut it into the right size!
Use a guide or square to mark the end of the plate and cut the plate with a round saw.
The average depth of the circular saw blade is not enough to cut more than 3 inch of the material, so you have to flip the plate for a second cut.
There are many different ways to make a table base.
Use the following materials this way :-Four (4)
4x4 cut size-Two (2)
10 feet 2x6, tearing to about 5 inch wide, planing and cutting to the desired length. Select a height you want, subtract the width of the table top, and cut the legs to that length on the Mitter saw.
To connect these legs to each other, you can simply screw your 2x6 s to the leg, but I have chosen to cut the leg concave and adjourn the 2x6 s.
To adjourn 2x6 s, please make sure the width of what you want the desktop highlight (
I choose inches)
, Put your table legs on the slate like you want them to sit there and measure the distance.
Then determine how high you want your support (
I chose about 10 inch).
Make a mark on your 4x4 post and line where you want your 2x6 s to be recessed.
Set the saw to a depth of 2x6 s (
Lean it against your 2x6 and lock the blade once it hits the table on your motherboard).
Clip your 4 x 4S onto a stable surface and cut out the lines in the groove area you mark with about 1/2 spacing.
Upon completion, hit these fine strips with a hammer, break them, and gouge the recessed area.
You have got 4x4!
Do this for all 4x4sAt now, you have measured (
Highlight you want)
, Cut all the material into columns of length, GAP 4x4.
Now, as shown above, pre-drill all the materials and screw them together to form the base!
I have chosen to screw the 4x4 pillars directly onto the board, but you can choose to insert a running board under the board.
Considering the thickness of the plate itself, I prefer the legroom.
I recommend using a pocket screw fixture to drill holes at one angle and fix the 4x4 pillars on the top plate.
Instead, I just used the drill and the pre-
Before fastening with screws, drill holes at an angle first.
You may even want to turn the edge of the desktop into a circular edge and handle it with a router.
I prefer sharp lines so I chose not to do so.
Now that you have finished a beautiful table, enjoy it with many friends and family.
You can enjoy it with good friends, acquaintances, nieces, uncles, fathers, sons. . . .
The possible use of this table is endless! ENJOY!
