Expandable height adjustment on C-Table ?
« on: December 01, 2019, 12:33 PM »
After finishing a C-Shaped end table, I must have taken too many cuts, since the vertical piece came out 1.5" too short, and if I use the table to slide under a taller chair, it is about 5" too short. Has anyone tried to cut a VERTICAL MEMBER in half, then extend it using two S/Steel flat stock pieces imbedded into the bottom half, and running loose in slots in the top half? I can either route grooves, insert the steel shafts, then cover with another wood cap or make new ones with a sandwich of 3/8" oak, then spacers to fit the flate stock, then another 3/8" full size cap piece.

I want to use the tables (3) as work tables or dinner tables while Im watching TV on favorite chairs, but the favs both have arms at different ieights.
