Hello fellow lumberjocks,
a few years ago I bought a wood-slab coffee table. While the wood (teak) is really beautiful, the craftsmanship is rather sloppy. Over time the t-join that was used at the base of the table became very loose, and the table just wiggles around like crazy.
I was wondering what your suggestions are on how to approach a repair on this. Obviously, wood is “missing”, so I need to come up with some way to add shims or something similar. But I also think that the whole base construction doesn’t make sense—the table should not just sit on the entire length of the two pieces, instead feet at the ends should be attached or routed into it.
The pictures below probably explain much better what I am talking about.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
