We picked up a 24" x 44" table with a drawer garbage picking. The frame is fine but the top is junk.
I want to make a new oak top but have a few questions . . .
The existing top is 1-1/2" thick with a rounded edge profile. I bought some 3/4" red oak and will glue up a top. On the edges I will double up the oak to get to the desired thickness.
My first question is : which way should I run the doubled up pieces on the endgrain portion of the top? Parallel to the short edge versus parallel to the long end?
I didn't have access to 1" + material to make a solid top so now I need a way to simulate it.
It's will be a laptop desk to LOML and I have to get it done by the June 16th since that's when the new laptop is arriving
Thanks in advance
