I just love ‘Tools Are for Women Too’ and am so thrilled to be a guest blogger today! I’m Rebekah from http://www.potholesandpantyhose.com/ and I blog about my life on the road with my musician hubby, my remodeling projects, my photography, and making arts and crap from cast-offs. And I try to maintain a somewhat normal life. However, normalcy keeps escaping me.
What you will need:
Step 2. Next, test the level of your table by screwing in small screws (NOT your lag screws), to the legs. Flip the table over and set your level on top. If it isn’t level, begin to shim up the lowest leg with scrap plywood. When you are satisfied with it being level, measure how much plywood it took to shim it up. This is the amount you will need to cut out and attach to the underside of the table.Or, you can choose to make it level by sanding until your shoulder falls off.
Flip the table back over and before removing the small ‘set’ screws, mark where your table legs rest with a pencil. Remove the legs.
Using a jig saw, cut sections of plywood that make up the difference in your table being level.
Once the cross section is dry, lightly buff the surface with a steel wool pad. Use your microfiber cloth again to remove all of the dust.
I would love to know how your log table has turned out. Come visit me at http://www.potholesandpantyhose.com/ and tell me, or see some of my other crafts.
Rebekah, besides being a terrific craftswoman, is also as nice a person as you will ever run into. Please take the time to go visit her. Rory
