RE-KIA Table

Materials: NUMERAR countertops, VIKA MOLIDEN table legs, Craigjig Screws, 10 – 5/8″ bolts and 2 – Iron Bars

Description: I purchased two (2) of the Numerar birch countertops ( 96 7/8 ” x 25 5/8″ ) and spliced them together, using a Craig Jig and two large iron bars for support, to make a single large surface ( 96 7/8″ x 51 1/4″ ). I then used a Skill Saw to cut diminishing angles into the sides of the table, on the top on two sides and the bottom on the others.

Finally I sanded the entire piece down and lacquered it to make it look like it was never two pieces but one giant piece. Once the four Vika Moliden table legs were attached the RE-KIA Table was complete. It is a great addition to our living room and easily seats 12 people and is an extremely sturdy table!

    How strong did the iro bars make the table top? Would you say that two adults could lay on top of it?

    …that sounds bad… I’m thinking of hacking a Numerar countertop and two expedid sheling units to make a RV-like dinette table turned bed.

    Craigjig is a way of attaching two planes together that are coplanar, it allows you to screw at a sever angle without ‘shinning’. In the second image you can see the screw holes.

    I sold the table and dont have any more pictures…I flipped the angle iron over and routed a small groove into the table to receive the iron so it would be flush to the bottom of the table. They are on the 1/3′s and at a 45 degree angle.
