« Part 57: Flooring Table Top unclamped sanded and secondary edge fitted Part 58 of Working with recycled timber series Part 59: Flooring Table top Finished Sanded and Sealed Not quite !! »

Once I freed up a few clamps it was simply a matter of adding the end edge,

Screwed in a center strengthening strip and it was done for a while awaiting for the glue to dry.

By afternoon I had it finished construction wise and just edge finishing required so I ran around the sides with a template router bit, filled the various holes then sanded to finish and applied sanding sealer.

Filled a few holes but left the resin vein

The other end

Thats it for blog series as its it now ready for its finishing coat (of which everybody is familiar with) so standby for it to be posted as a project.

P.S. I dont like the look of the sides showing the end grain so I may add trim to hide it, undecided just yet.

Thanks everybody for looking and commenting makes it all worthwile.

-- Regards Rob

Rob, this looks nice. Using recycled material always takes time a patience. This project turned out very well, but needed your skills and innovation. It has been fun to follow the steps as you have made progress. Thanks for taking us along. Hope the table provides years of service.
