    This just popped up in my alerts today, didn’t realise it’s been four years.

    It had a coat of decking oil the other weekend, still looks as good as day 1

    Nice job
    However you missed the details regarding A&E
    What did you cut off.

    Ah. A 4 year old thread. My bad

    Nothing cut off. I was sanding a radius edge on the boards and big splinter went under the thumb nail and came out the other end. Tried to pull it out and it snapped. Had to have a quick little operation at A&E to have it removed

    Why the lock bolts on the leg screws?

    I use chopping boards as material for damp proofing for things like that.

    I do now but at the time I had access to free nylon which was cut to size. 99p shop chopping boards have a multitude of uses.

    As for the lock nuts I wanted nyloc but didn’t have any the correct size, this was a temp measure to stop the legs getting loose. They are still like that now. Over engineering, just like the rest of the table
