And repairs too.


I had a request to repair a table top… this table was made in the USA but purchased 30 years ago in Scotland… over the years the glue holding the Hard Rock Maple strips together started giving way… It arrived in 2 pieces but soon became 6 after I put some stress on the joins…

To ensure that my glue joins did not fail I resorted to Biscuits…and Titebond III…

After leaving it in clamps for several days… I was away… attached it to the bench of the new 3 metre Torque Workcentre and using the 55 mm surfacing cutter, dressed it nice and flat in no time at all…

Unfortunately while running a ROS over the surface for finish sanding…..you guessed it… one more glue joint gave way..

Back to the biscuits, glue and clamps…

Next day… out of clamps… a skim on the TWC, a little sanding and it is now ready for a few coats of Tung Oil Finish…

Here it is after one coat…

Three coats later… ready for pickup… tomorrow… Heavy son of a gun… too…
