Topic tags/keywords: grizzly 1023z wings table extension

Here is my question. What is the best way to fill in the holes in these table wings? I like the cast iron but I’m not sure I am going to like the holes in my table top.

I thought about turning them over and filling it with a light coat of fiberglass.

I have seen these wings filled with melamine, mdf etc cut to size and stuck in the holes flush with the top. Probably with a backer board and epoxy.

I think the easiest thing to do is to ream out the holes on the wings enough so you can drop the wings low enough to attach some 1/8” tempered hard board on top….there may already be enough play in the wing holes to do that. They’ll be well supported by the cast iron grates, and will have the benefit of the mass and rigidity of the cast iron.

Thanks MRG new ideas.

Knot – I wondered if that could be done. I’ll check out the holes and see if there is substantial space. Too cold to work in there today so it will have to wait a while.

If not enough room, I wonder if a laminate would work…probably harder to adhere flat to the CI, but I’ve never tried…

There are some pretty thin laminates, I will look into that also. Thanks

I have a neighbor that applies laminate over cast iron tops and he likes it.
