An abandoned old table is picked up with many scratches and sticky paper. The legs are worn-out and weakly supported. Fortunately, there are not any visible cracks in the table, and it would be a pity to throw it away. Therefore, I will renovate it and replace the original legs with table legs to make it more advanced. Now let's get started! You can watch the whole video on YTB.

The equipment needed

An old table /FlexiSpot oval legs /Electric drills /A chisel for woodworking  /A steel rule

A chamfering machine /A sanding machine /A plane /Red-brown spray paint

Steps:

1. The display of the old desk: Serious scratches on the desktop and several sticky papers to be dealt with; Extensive damage and breakage on table legs; The table shakes violently at a slight touch.

2. Initially, we need to use electric drills to remove the original table legs.

3. Then, we focus on the desktop: first, clean up the sticky paper on the surface with a chisel.

4. Then, use the steel rule to ensure the table is flat and level. Plane the surface if it is not smooth.

5. Polish the front and back sides of the table with the sanding machine.
