Table top

Teton

Go to Kobi blocks website in Tennessee.
24x24x1 is the perfect size.
It takes 4 wood screws to replace it.
I really like striped walnut.

Those solid wood tops look very nice, but how strong are they?

Ours would be 26" X 42" with the grain running lengthwise. How does that work out when the table is converted to a bed and two adults lay on it?

Would hate to have my expensive table split down the middle and dump my guests on the floor.

Depending upon your concern of the weight of the table itself, you can have them made up to 3" thick. I would think 1" would have plenty of strength for the sleeper mode.

On our solid antique Louisiana Cypress table we were not concerned about making a sleeper so we had the top made 4" narrower this allows more room for sitting sideways in the 27fb for lounging, when eating at the table we place a small pillow between our back and the bolster. We also made the table 4" longer, and this makes the table have more of a beautiful rectangle look, and love the extra length that more matches the size of the seating. It is also 1" taller than original and about the same weight.

That's quoting my own question from post #24. I found that the only way to use real wood of normal thickness to support a bed is to run the boards sideways - like bed slats run. So I'm working on making a table that way:


That's ten maple, walnut, and cherry boards 26" long with a total width of 42". They are edge glued with biscuits to help keep the boards lined up while glueing. I have no doubt it'll hold up the bed, but frankly the center will sag if used as a table. I'll have to attach cleats or battens under the table to give it sufficient strength. So this is a work in process...

That's why if you look at the tables in your home they generally have about a 4" wide apron supporting the top. There's a reason why RV makers use particle board and formica - it's strong and light.

Replace 23FB tabletop with smaller Bambi size?

I asked about this very thing this morning before leaving the Mother Ship and the lady at the desk in the visitor's center essentially blew me off instead of telling me who I needed to speak with. We just took delivery 6 weeks ago of a 25FB FC and the table is too wide for us, too. What are the dimensions of the one you got out of a Bambi?

Lacking that, I saw a table in the lounge at Jackson Center and idly wonder if Airstream still has any of these tops available. We'd LOVE one with a world map/Formica top. I will call Parts Dept. on Tuesday and ask.

That will be beautiful!
I think a table would be strongest if it had a set of boards under that glued up at 90 degrees to the top. That way, everything is locked together. It wouldn't need to the the total width, but close.

Hi, we are going to replace the table top in our 25 ft flying cloud and are considering a shorter table. At least half the length. Would you have a picture of your remodel to send us to see what you did. We have menonites in the area that would be very qualified to do this using the hardware and leg that is already there.

Thanks for the links and info. Researching a sport 16 countertop and table replacement. Want to avoid laminate and Formica but don't want to add much weight.

I have looked at this thread and also had similar ideas! I have my new table in the workshop right now, Baltic birch, a sheet of 3/4 with a 1/2 thick trim (2") on the underside. The corners of the original, make the street-side (stove counter side) a little tight between the table and the counter-top. So this version has more rounded corners which should give 3 more inches in the gap to slide in! I need to put the Varathane on it and switch over the hardware. It is not too heavy but has a beefy look with the 1 1/4 inch edge. I will post finish pics when I get it installed.

PS: I can never get the pic oriented correctly!

We replaced our table top for 2 reasons:

1) The original metal edge trim was glued incorrectly creating a sharp edge to cut yourself on.

2) The table top would create a bump when pushed down to make the bed. We wanted it to be flush so no bump was there.

I found a piece of live edge 2" thick lumber at Home Depot. I cut it and coated it for protection.

We have some stain that should make it better match the light colors of the cabinets.

It adds a bit of personal touch to the trailer as well.

This is what I am thinking, round the edges and maybe make the end more oval. Did you use a birch plywood or solid birch? Can you post a pic of the underside? Also weigh the old and new table?
We also dislike the metal trim. It is dangerous to the cushions when putting the table down. Thanks for the pictures.
