This kitchen table with a drop leaf using a wool joint and hinges from Russo hardware. This looks like an easy project, but we ran into a few challenges along the way to check it. So this is our kitchen and it has this cool restaurant-style booth in here, but it's got this round table that doesn't really fit the space and it blocks access to the kitchen. So what I want to do is I want to replace this round table with something square. So I went to my local Home Center and got some of this insulation foam here and made a square template that would fit the space and it's even got the little drop leaf here to allow access into the kitchen and instead of a typical table where the Green runs along the edge, I think I'm gonna.
Have it go from corner to corner this way. So, let's head on over the shop and get started to get started, I'm going to rip all my boards, to wit, prop step them to link and then glue them up. I have all my boards here in this diamond pattern, and the reason for that is I'm going to have the table go this way, so the grain is not running parallel with the edge. If I just glue this all up, I'm gonna have inconsistencies along the top. I don't have a sander big enough to do this. No, it's! Actually. Up with some biscuits in here, remove all this excess glue.
So we have our glued up board here. All sanded flats, I'm gonna, take our template from before to help me kind of align where I want this to be so. We're gonna take a jigsaw. We're going to cut this all the way around and then we'll probably take a circular saw to this. So we get a nice straight cut. So I round it over both sides, kind of give it a little bull nose profile there. So I'm gonna cut off the part. That's going to be the leaf right here! You can see my pencil line on here.
I have a straight edge clamped down to there and I'm just going to take. My circular saw, so this is a set and, as you can see, they match up perfectly and so we'll do one bit on one side, one bit on the other side and with them when the board comes up and meet nice and flush, and It has this little curved beautiful little drop, leaf action, thingy check it. So I have the bit in my router here to cut. What's called the rural joint, I have a piece of plywood underneath here for the bearing two right up against and then on the leaf part.
I have another bit mounted in my router table and we'll cut that next two things one. I forgot to put my dust mask on and it makes a mess. A second is, you can actually run this all along the top and have that as your decorative profile, but I'm only going to have it on the hinge here. So, let's move over to the router table, wipe off my crotch and do the leaf.
