I am a complete novice looking to refurb an old dining table I have into a coffee table which will also double as a Carrom table. See here for what a carrom table is:

A bit like a finger pool table.

Now my question is I need to create a neat square recess (32 inch x 32 inch) in my table which is about 2 inches thick of about 1 inch depth. How can I do this as if I chisel it it will be a mess!

Template, router with bushing, long sled to span.

Do a search on LJ for router planer sled.

Is the table solid wood all the way through?

Thanks for the response. Yes, it is solid wood all the way through. Will take a look at the long sled and get back if I have any questions.

Thanks for the link. It was a trip down memory lane for me. A friend had this game and we played it a lot back in 1951.
