Make a wooden table.

How to make a wooden table

When we consider how to make a wooden table for the kitchen or for the dining room, many of us will think that we will not be able to make a nice and resistant table (or very resistant if we want to make a workbench). And although being able to make a table just like a professional carpenter would perhaps not be within everyone's reach, we can make one with a few tools and some simple woodworking techniques for hobbyists. And when I speak of few tools I mean little more than one circular saw, a dowel guide and a drill with which we can make simple but resistant joints between the legs and the stringers. And as proof there you have a photo with Matthias Wandel jumping happily on the table.

On this occasion you can read two articles where he makes the same type of table, with the legs and the stringers joined with wooden dowels, with only a few modifications in the manufacturing. In the first of the articles, the joints are made by directly drilling the holes for each dowel at once through the legs and entering the table stringers, while in the second case it uses a dowel guide with which it has to Use a couple of tricks to get the holes drilled to match and align on both pieces to be joined (just be very careful when measuring the position of the dowel guide with the tape measure).

We will also see differences when joining the top table top, since in the first case glue some wooden blocks inside the stringers to be able to screw the board from them, while in the second case it avoids the handicap of a crossbar too high for the screws by drilling holes wide and deep enough to allow the screws to sink into them, enough to allow them to come out from the top and can anchor the board to the table.

You will also be interested to know that you will find the free drawings of this table, that the table is easily removable and that it can be used as a workbench in the home carpentry workshop. And although for the first article he did not record a video of the manufacturing, in the second he has a complete photographic report with step-by-step explanations of the manufacturing process, as well as a video for which I have already sent him the subtitles in Spanish to incorporate them. . You just have to activate them in the YouTube player.

You have the link to both articles in Spanish on how to make this wooden table in the tab woodworking projects of this blog and there go to translations of Woodgears (number 3).
