Dining table – a finishing touch

Posted by jerry on October 13th, 2007 — Posted in DIY, Journal, Woodwork

Keeping the frame light and unobtrusive, yet strong enough for a long wide dining table meant I had to use knockdown bolts to keep the structure tight. But that left some unsightly holes where the nut/dowels were inserted to intersect with the bolts. So, a decorative trim was in order.

I took some Australian red maple left over from the bookcases and used the roundel cutter in the drill. Then sanded off the outside risers and glued them each side of the table legs on the apron – it adds a nice feature to the table 🙂
