The drawing is a diagram that visually describes the sequence of actions, following which the expected result is guaranteed. If a unique design is conceived, then you will have to work on the diagram and drawings yourself. To do this, you can use a computer program, then print the received documents in order to have a visual guide.
The step-by-step process of making wood worktops can be described as follows:
Choose the right amount of materials. For a standard width you will need 6-7 boards in 3 cm thick. Only perfectly smooth boards processed by jointer are suitable. Knots are not a hindrance.
Subject the wood to antiseptic treatment and dry thoroughly.
Lay out the boards in the shape of an even rectangle. Align joints.
Attach a block on both sides and cut off evenly.
Screw the timber to the boards. On the reverse side of the countertop, in the center of the boards on each side, drill a hole for the bolt through a 2/3 block. On the beam, make the recess wider so that the cap of the bolt drowns.
Attach the board diagonally from the bottom with self-tapping screws greased with glue.
Sand the surface first with rough sandpaper, then softer.
Coat the product with stain and varnish. If desired, the table can be painted.
Homemade glued wood worktop
Tables made of such a material have a smooth and uniform structure, do not have joints and crevices. Another argument in favor of this technology will be resistance to the occurrence of deformations and cracking. To make a table, you will need 4 boards with smoothly planed edges, having the following parameters - 1x1.5x0.5 m. The algorithm of work is as follows:
In the ends at a distance of 10-12 cm, make holes of 8-12 mm in size. They are needed for mounting dowels and dowels. The holes in the two side boards are made only on one side.
Fold the boards correctly before gluing.
Sand the boards, coat with glue.
Insert dowels and fasten boards.
Align the ends and make sure the correct position of each board.
Lay the finished countertop on a flat surface and squeeze it tightly with a clamp.
Leave to dry.
Making a round table
To implement the idea of creating a round table with your own hands, you need to have the following materials:
Square beam (width - 100 mm, length 750 mm - 4 pcs;
Boards 100 to 20 mm, length 750 mm - 2 pcs;
Boards 250 by 40 mm, length 2000 mm - 4 pcs;
Boards 100 to 20 mm, length 800 mm - 2 pcs;
Boards 100 by 20 mm, length 1600 mm - 2 pcs.
Step-by-step instructions for creating a round table handmade:
Four long boards fold tightly together.
Draw a circle.
Cut with a jigsaw along the line.
Make a rectangular frame and fasten the circle with screws.Attach legs to the frame.
Check stability, and then disassemble.
To process a tree with sand paper. First hard, then soft.
Cover with stain and varnish.At first glance it seems that the most important detail of the table is the countertop. However, do not underestimate the legs of the product. After all, they decorate the table and give it a certain style. The legs should correspond to the basic style of the model and the necessary parameters.
The paradox is that the more complex and pretentious the table legs are, the less they will last. The most reliable will be simple wooden, stable and lightweight supports. Drawings for them can not be done. Steps for making table legs:
Selection of four equal in length (85 cm) bars;
Installation of bars in the corners of the countertop;
The connection on each side with boards or bars: two equal in length and two equal in width;
This design is glued to the table and left to dry.Not always the table has standard four legs, sometimes masters resort to creating a table under the frame and one or two legs. Glue can be replaced with furniture corners, which are fastened with self-tapping screws, or for reliability, use both options. You can create an unusual fantasy model by evenly attaching the countertop to the ornate and bizarre wood roots. It will be a terrific product that only you will have.
Holes are drilled in each element of the product, then the parts are bolted, which makes the product really durable. You can enhance the effect by fixing with a good glue. The screws are screwed inside from an acute angle with respect to the board. If the finished product is noticeably staggering, use special belts with locks. This will help make the design more reliable and stable.
For the legs, wooden blocks are taken, which must be processed with a planer in the shape of a cone. Carved balusters, which you can either buy or independently grind on a lathe, are also great for this. Performing the construction with his own hands, a person gains skills in working with wood, so if it becomes necessary to repair the product, it will not cause difficulties. You will already have all the necessary arsenal of tools. In addition, you will need wood and tools for the restoration of old wooden products.
Getting a good and solid result is not so difficult. The main thing is to comply with all necessary conditions. After the main work, the time comes for the final, but no less important stage - processing the product with varnish. In order to correctly carry out this operation, observe the following rules:
Sand manually the edges of the countertop;
Apply high-quality varnish to the entire product. In addition, coloring of some parts of the table with paint will look very decorative;
Flaws in the work are well masked with a putty that is suitable in color.
The most popular option for decorating a wooden table is to cover its surface with a transparent or colored varnish, which emphasizes the natural woody pattern and ensures its protection from external factors.
In order for the product made by hand to serve for many years, while remaining the pride of the owner, it is recommended to follow the simple rules:
Avoid direct contact of the product with the open sun and do not leave it outside in the rain;
Keep the surface clean;
Treat with polish;
In winter, keep the table indoors so that the varnish coating does not suffer.
