Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Start in the center and attach the tabletop supports to the underside of tabletop with 1 1/4" screws and glue. Use the diagram above to help you find the centers of the supports and tabletop boards. Then work you way outwards, leaving a 1/2" gap between tabletop boards.
When all boards are screw to supports, use a string held in the center of the table and to a pencil to draw circle shape as shown above. Cut out circle shape with jigsaw. Sand edges until smooth and even.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
