Moving into our new house we decided to get original with our furniture and build our own unique table. Although I've never been much of a handy man I did have some help along the way to complete this.
First I started by collecting some timber from a recycled timber yard at Varsity Lakes, from there I took the old hardwood timber to Matt at Hardwood Heaven at Burleigh and got him to glue to table top together. After it was glued he got his belt sander out and gave the timber a light sand to strip back some of the old paint to the wood and make the edges flush. After this was completed I took it home and put it all together. We bought some ikea chairs and the job was done.
It's a great feeling having something that you've created in your home weather it be a painting, enlarged photo on canvas for the wall or as i've done, a dining table, it's well worth the effort. Get into it.
