Make this folding cedar table. Let's go ahead and get started. The wood shop is sponsored by robust late, easy wood tools and chef, we're kids. Okay. I ran to the home, store and picked up another cedar for this. An 8-foot board I'm going to have about 26 inches of scrap left over from it, and this is the scrap piece I had from the chair. I made it a couple of weeks ago, so I'm going to use that it worked out perfect and I picked up a couple of towels. This is a one-inch dowel in 3/8, so I only need seven inches of the one-inch dowel and this I'm not sure yet so, there's a little Dowling in the project so probably use maybe half of it or so we'll see at the end. But I do need to resolder these two pieces on the table saw because I couldn't find any half-inch of material that effort. I sanded it down and cleaned it up.
It would have been way too thin. So I'm just gonna use this and resize it's gonna, be I'm going to cut it a little thick and then run it through the surface sander. So let's go ahead and start getting it cut up and I'll give you the measurements as we go along. Cut the 47 by three top each piece into three pieces: 2 and 15 and 1/4 and 1/2 13 cut the 8 foot by 3/4 inch piece in the three pieces to a 20 and a half and 114 okay, here's what I have so far: they're all half an inch thick and they have four of them at 1415 and a quarter by three and a half. Those are going to be at the top of the table that these are supports underneath the table and they are 14 inches by the inch and five-eighths. And these are the legs and they are 20 and 1/2 by inch and a half again or inch and five-eighths again. And then two, these are the slower supports and there are three and a half by 13. All the supports need a hole drilled at one end 7/8 of an inch from the end. That's the 20 and a half inch piece and the 14-inch pieces.
The 29-inch pieces also need a hole, drill, nine and a half inches from the opposite in, okay, I have all my holes drilled. Now, I'm just gonna go ahead and mark and round over all the corners on it. If so, these two pieces here, I'm gonna round over all four corners on it and then on the top. Just the two outside pieces - I'm just gonna round over two corners on like that mark it out, and I found a cap that fits perfectly black metal water works out great. So I'm just gonna mark those and I'll probably just take the little drum sander there and knock these off. It's pretty soft wood, okay, cut four little pieces there inch and a half long they're a little bit longer, but I'm going to use that flush side to trim them off afterward. So we need to glue one side of these in there they're loose on the other side, so just put a little bit of glue on there and one of these I need to cut two more, but they need to be a little bit longer. It supports in here and just picks whatever side you like best. I would let the glue dry completely doesn't get glued together. Okay, why? The glue is drying. I'm gonna start assembling the top of it here, so you need to find the center there, 14 inches. So 7 inches you need to drill down in there, maybe a quarter of an inch. It does take a little dowel just a little bit. It sticks up the almost flush with the top to drill down in their quarter of an inch and leave that adopted a sticking out all right. So I found Center, so I'm gonna take it back over it drill, press and just drill down it. Okay, I screwed up, I glued them into here, and I had to pull them right back out, so they get glued into.
This is where the handle goes. So this was a long two inch pieces. They go into the outside legs, so if you don't have plans or one to look at it's a little little bit confusing putting it together so I'll show you real quick. So if this goes in here, these ones go on the inside on the outside. Here, just like that, and then these ones, so once you get to put those in I'll cut those off flush and they go in just like is so when they stand out. It comes up just like that. Your boards are gonna be on there and the reason for this dowel in the center. Is it just kind of gives it a stop and locks it together? All right, so I'm gonna cut the handle. Okay cut my dowel, it's seven and an eight, and I just found Center on it. Just use a center finder here find Center, and I just took a punch and put it give it in there. I just drilled out in both ends here and put the handle on, and I'm not sure on this, I'm not gonna. Do it I'm just gonna lose but the other handles lose, but I'm not sure if it's just because of time or they can lose that together, but I'm just gonna leave it to leave it loose. It's gonna be fine.
The top it's gonna be glued on there so to support it and hold it together. Before I put the top on, I'm gonna go ahead and stand everything, and this is just a clear, clear, stain. Okay, I just found some little strips here, I'm going to use as spacers for this, so I put one in between here and the dowel and I'm gonna pull this one off. I'm gonna mark a little line down center here, just with a pencil and just real light just so, I can send it off when I'm done here just so. I can so. I know where we're the center is, and this one over a little bit and then I'll reference off this line on that one there I'm just going to go ahead and pre-drill and then for screws. I got some wicked a there number. Six is one inch on this side is screwed to the outside, too. Those are the ones I come all right, just like that. I'm gonna take the flush cuts on and cut those off real, quick and I'll put a finish on that.
