I want to make use of the fact, that my girlfriend is abroad for a couple of weeks. When we moved in together her dad gave her an old kitchen table as a present. Unfortunaly it was very poorly repaired (2kg of liquid wood to fill all the gaps) and started to fall apart.
I want to surprise her with the table in a perfect condition, when she comes back.
As you see, there are many emotions connected to this peace of furniture. This is why I dont want to make mistakes in this project. Wish me luck…
Today is day zero:
I used hot water, steam and gentle force to disassemle the table. The glue was as thick as 1/4 inch on some gaps, what made the disassembly even easier.
I cleaned all the grooves from glue and sanded them gently. In the next step I want to cut the 4 boards rectangular again. Maybe I have to recut the grooves then, what I want to avoid.
Please feel free to tell me, if a sentence does not sound fluent. I am not a native speaker and want to use this blog to improve my writen english, too.
