The wife had this table that she really liked. It was an old table that had been reconditioned at least once before. I do not know WHO did the reconditioning, but they obviously had no idea what they were doing. The table top was coming apart at the glue joints. Seeing the Mrs. heartbroken, I told her that I would fix it. Now, my father was a contractor. To save on mill work, he built a barn and stocked it with industrial grade equipment (table saw, radial arm saw, drill press, etc). Having grown up around these tools, and having to work for my dad whenever I had a day off, I got to know my way around woodworking. So, I began by knocking the table top apart. The glue joints needed only a little tap to break cleanly. I then took each piece to the joiner, and then glue them back up only this time I used biscuit joinery and pipe clamps. No WAY that is coming apart again. I did not stop there. I decided that I might as well refinish the top as well. It was nice to do some woodworking again... Anybody else have any projects going on? The above is a pic of one of the side-leafs.
