*3/4 inch thick Birch Plywood (cut to size at your home improvement store)
*carpenter's wood glue ( I used Gorilla Wood Glue)
*stainable wood putty
*drill(bit size= smaller than your finishing nails)
*red oak trim molding(enough to fit around your table, cut to size at store) mine came to 20ft.
*stain of choice( I used Minwax Stain and Sealer in Bombay Mahogany)
*3/4 inch square dowel
*safety gear( Earplugs, mask, goggles)
*stain applicators of choice(read the back of your stain can to see if it recommends a brush or staining cloth)
Apply wood glue along edge of your tabletop and place trim , hold in place while you drill a pilot hole through the trim and tabletop. Countersink your finishing nails. Repeat for all sides. Apply wood putty over the nails and sand after dry.
My red oak molding came in 20 foot sections, so in order to use one piece, I just had the home improvement store make straight cuts the same length as the sides of my tabletop. Then to fill in the gap at the corners, i used a 3/4 inch square dowel and attached it with wood glue and finishing nails. I used the power sander to create the detail to somewhat match the molding trim piece.
Apply stain according to the directions on your can, and allow to dry appropriate time before placing on your bases. Enjoy your handiwork!! Thank you for visiting today and don't forget to subscribe and comment to make my day:)
