Another Idea

You could also add an oak 1x2 or something similar for the table to mount to. This should give you adequate clearance for the table to sit flat against the wall and should be signifigantly easier than building a channel. Maybe add a shelf above to be used when the table is laying flat. Just wanted to throw out another idea. Joe

Just finished a new exhaust system two days ago.
We need pictures. The remodeling though, not your exhaust.

I need almost 3" due to the channel used for the expansion of the table. I have already decided that I want to use plank oak like I have in the rest of the coach. Originally I was using oak from our property in Iowa 30 years ago when I ran out of that I found a store here in Milwaukee that sold white oak planks but they had none this time. I will change it all over this winter. We also were just given three boxes of laminated wood flooring which will be installed to replace the stained carpet.

Okay CK. New floor, new cushions, recovered barrel chair, new wall panels, new cabinet for tv and two coats of varnish on all woodwork. Not too bad a cabinet for an old jack knife carpenter, huh?

Gentlemen: Is there any savings in weight replacing the carpeting with flooring? I notice Cooperhawk replaced his carpet, and Ch K appears ready to........

Best,

Coop- Nice job looks great. I love the cabinet- good work.
Rob, I don't think we have considered the weight of wood VS carpet only the aesthetics and economy of keeping it looking good.

I didn't weigh it but I would think the wood flooring is a little heavier. Remember however that their is carpet and carpet pad so the old carpeting does weigh quite a little. I also sealed all my underflooring with kilz before putting down the pergoe.
