Choose Proper Table
To choose proper table, focus on width and height. Depth is not important since table will be customized with new depth.
Measure and Mark Dining Room Wall
Use tape measure to determine proper width and height of serving buffet. Mark measurements on wall with pencil and level. Jot dimensions down for reference.
Cut to Size
Use tape measure to determine where to cut, mark a straight line along the top using a pencil and the level. With help of a friend, guide the table through the table saw along marked line.
