I have a friend that wants me to make her a 8 ft dining room table. Base in Walnut, top in ash with a walnut inlay.
I had planned to use domino’s (2 each ) in all the miters, tight bond 3 glue, and then just for added security counter sink and screw two 3 inch timberpro screws, and cover with a dowel or walnut peg for a little extra embellishment.
A good friend and a great woodworker said I will still have movement and the joint will eventually open. I know this would be likely with a 3/4 or maybe 4/4 top, but 6/4???
I would certainly seal both the bottom and top of the table top, for added resistance to moisture.
But I don’t want to waste all this nice wood and time if in the end the table top is going to be problematic.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
