I was taking a class of physics to review some things at Broome Community College which required me to use a table with minimum of one meter by one meter in proportion. The first problem was money and the second problem was space.
Lucky for me, I found out that one of my neighbours thought to the trash an old table for kids.
I pick up that table. I bought a board for less than 10 dollars. A little work, and magic.
Just some pointers:
1. Always wear safety glasses for any work you may do. NO EXCEPTIONS.
2. If you are going to make holes,
a. Get a piece of wood under the piece you are planning to make the hole
b.Using a nail and hammer, place a mark where you are going to make the hole. The mark will make your drilling easier and prevent the drill moving to a different location.
c. Measure twice and drill once.
d. Don’t apply extreme force, let the drill do its work, be patience.
