This project started with a 1970’s dining room table. The finish was banged up, few dents in the wood. But still a very solid table made in solid wood. I got a portable poker table off Craiglist. Mounted it to a 3/4” thick sheet of plywood. Used a flush trim bit in my router to match the perimeter. Mounted the poker table top to the dining room table. By using screws underneath the table. Then purchased some 2-5/8 wide Chair Rail molding. Painted all the wood trim prior to miter cutting. To lessen my chances of getting black paint on the green felt. This is when I love my Dewalt 12” Miter saw. 22-1/2 degree cuts right on the money all the way around. Glued and pin nailed the trim around the table. Gave it about an hour to dry and setup. Lightly sanded the miter corners and touched up paint. Ready for pictures. The style and sturdy dining room table base. Gave this project a solid beginning. I love combining my wood working with the repurposing of wood products of the past.
