Diy Farmhouse Dining Table – Before embarking on the restoration of a piece of furniture, it is better to thoroughly inspect all the pieces (top, bottom, sides …) and take the time to check the solidity of the assemblies (base, tray, drawers …). This first step is always very useful before going further. The model recovered here is of rather simple design: a drawer, a tray, a belt, and four feet. There are no extensions or folding trays, which simplifies all the operations to come.
Made of solid wood, this diy farmhouse dining table features vintage assemblies that allow the wood to “work” freely. The “new” wood has been tinted so that it is close to the old one. The chestnut tree (like oak) being strongly tannic, it is possible to age artificially with lime water (a glass of lime for 2 liters of water), but the result is quite random. The tips can be torn off the pliers, by inserting a metal plate to avoid marking the wood.

The tray consists of a central panel, assembled by tongue and groove, and lateral crosspieces clamped between the sockets by tenons and mortises pegged. Disassemble the sockets by removing the diy farmhouse dining table dowels with a pin punch. Araser with wood chisels remaining pegs and extra thicknesses of glue. Replace the damaged parts preferably with the same wood species. On the new sockets, make two side mortises and an intermediate groove.
