IKEA items used:
Norden Extendable Table
Other items used:
– 3 melamine panels cut to size
– leaf alignment pins
– quarter round
Started with a regular Norden table. I had 3 melamine panels measured and cut at Home Depot. I then applied iron-on Melamine edge tape to the edges to cover up the exposed particle board.
Marking where the leaf-alignment pins should go.
Made a simple jig out of wood scraps to help with drilling the pin holes.
Alignment pins inserted.
Moment of truth! Checking alignment of pins.
Adding quarter round to bottom face of panels so that they don’t slip out of place.
Original Norden tabletop re-surfaced with felt.
500-piece puzzle in progress.
