Making dining room table procedure questions
Gentleman, I am making a dining room table for my daughter. My questions involve the top. I am using 3/4 MDF for the substrate and I intend to glue 3/16ths curly maple to the top and a lesser grade maple to the bottom. The top is round (54 in. radius) with two 12 in. leafes to be added . I have thiner maple a intend to wrap around the edge and make a skirt. My questions are these.
1. What would be the best type of glue to use for this project.
2. When should I cut the piece in half-before or after I glue the
3. Should I edge glue the curly maple strips all together and
then glue to MDF all at once or apply to substrate and glue
pieces as I go.
4. Is there a particular brand or type of hardware I should use
for the leaf extention mechanism.
All comments and suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
