A table with your own hands: a description of the work process
A table is one of the necessary pieces of furniture. The assortment of these goods, represented on the market, is diverse. They differ in form, purpose, design and, of course, at a price. But sometimes it's very expensive to buy a good, high-quality copy. However, nothing restricts us in wanting to make a table of our own, while significantly saving money.
Perhaps one of the most popular modelsis a kitchen table. The technology of its manufacture and the process itself will depend on the chosen design. For traditional models, the manufacturing method is almost identical. By this principle, you can make any table, including tennis, if you follow the parameters.
Doing the table yourself, it is necessary to remember that the lid - the most important and decorative attractive element of the construction - can be made in several ways.
Method number 1
A sheet of chipboard is used as a basis. From it the form of the future product is cut out: it can be either rectangular or any other. The resulting part is polished on both sides. For strength, the top is covered with plastic. It can be planted on glue. It is recommended to use glue BF-2. The underside of the lid is covered with a varnish for furniture.
Making a table with your own hands, you can createan exclusive copy. To do this, it is enough to make a lid of wooden bars. It will look more beautiful that variant in which different-sized boards with various patterns are used. Joins the bars together with self-tapping screws or glued together with furniture glue. For greater strength, the lid can be made multilayered, glued to the bottom of the plywood, and the top is protected with plastic. If you want it to look more natural, you can save the wooden cover texture, covering it only with varnish.
Method number 3
A good option for the cover is plywood, especiallyif you make a table yourself. This material is easy to find on sale, and it is not necessary to use only high-quality products, medium-quality plywood is quite suitable. For work choose thick sheets (from 12 mm). The main surface treatment is done by varnishing, the upper side is protected by a plastic sheet.
If you observe the length and width of the lid,in the same way you can make a tennis table with your own hands. The only thing to remember: for this category of tables it is recommended to make strong legs using a steel profile. The cover of the tennis table should also be strong and resistant to damage, so you need to cover it with plastic.
