    Hi all,

    I have some old Iroko worktops that I would like to use to make the Occasional Table project. The only problem is that the wood is only 1″ thick and the legs need 1 1/2″ stock.

    Is it acceptable to joint two pieces of the worktop to make a 2″ thick piece that I can then cut the legs from? Or would that be a bad idea?

    Structurally there would be nothing wrong, however, visually it might be challenging to match them up. If painting the piece then it would work well.



    Hi Chris
    Yes you can, but try to match the pc. To hide the seam put a bead on it or a simple inlay.
