I hope you all enjoyed a nice Easter with family and friends. We had some family come over for a late lunch I was happy to host as we haven't done a family get together for a while now. I was able to extend out our kitchen table a little into the family room to accommodate more people than our daily crew. My table however wasn't big enough to seat the 10 people properly with the two leaves...so I had to come up with a solution. I thought I could add a card table but they just were not the right width to match up with my table, so I kept searching for a better solution. Then it occurred to me, I could attach metal support to the under side of the table top and add a leaf at the end, so that's what I did. It was a gamble but I thought it was worth trying even if it was on the day before our gathering.
(just pretend you don't see the drill)
I used my orbital sander to smooth everything out and to soften the edges.
There we go a lovely Easter and a little DIY project that sounds about right to me.
