This is a table my father build many years ago for my sister. It is constructed of old scrap 2’ x 4” and other items he had laying around. I was ask to try and make it level. Simple. Not so fast it had large gaps that I could not pull closed with my clamps. So the tear down started. To make a long story short. I have to plane all the boards and go through the process of making them 4 square. 4 weeks later it is level, smoth and ready for finish. I think it might have been better to have just build a new one.

-- But I did measure it twice and cut it three time and it still is to short!

Looks good. Great for you giving that table a make over. It surely will last a really long time.

Great job! Just like rebuilding an engine, you tear it down and put it back together, but the serial numbers still match. IOW, it’s still Dad’s….. you done good!!!
