Hi, I recently had to “repair” the 13 tables from a local restaurant. I said repair because these table were made 2 years ago by the owner of the place. The wood was not dry at all and screwed to a 3/4” plywood to keep it flat. It did not kept anything flat. So I took all the table tops to my shop and resaw them, plane them, glue them and add breadboard to contain the wood movement.
The tables turns out great. Finish is 3 coats of Livos countertop oil.
It was my first experience with pine table tops and I’m a little bit anxious. The pine is soft so the breadboards are. The table tops are mounted on steel pedestal. There is no structure at all to keep it flat. What will you guys do? Adding cleats made out of hard wood under the table tops?
