Repairing An Antique Harvest Table

 

You know how it is when you have company and you need to enlarge the table.  Well, this one customer has this beautiful white oak harvest table that would not work properly.

The table had jute straps that were not attached completely to the leaves of the table.  The leaves were jamming when the table was being shortened. It took some effort to pull and push to work the slides.

We took the leaves out and worked on getting the straps attached in their proper place, then we discovered a skid board was missing, fortunately we had a scrap board in the tool box that was just the ticket.

  

 

We took bar soap, (paraffin wax is the best) and rubbed the wooden tracks underneath to get them to run smoother and quickly.

The table now is working very smoothly! We were able to close it up nicely.
