Building a table extender
We got a new co-worker in our company, and our tables are to low for him. After some planning, we found an easy solution on how to increase the height of the table for the moment.
The solution is to extend each of the for legs by around 10-15cm by using a small block of wood. To keep the foot on top of the extender, it has a small indentation.
Unfortunately, I do not have any blocks of wood which are big enough for this task. To solve this issue, I’ve used the same approach as when I build the legs of my kitchen table: Laminating multiple layers of plywood together. It worked perfectly and also allowed for some testing to get the ideal number of layers. I’ve again rushed the glue-up a bit and should have spent some more time there, as I had a lot of work cleaning the sides up afterward. And on one block I did not clamp the layers enough.
I’ve finished the blocks with two coats of clear coat, giving the extender some protection. Installing went like a breeze, and the table is still quite stable.
