Male: Alyssa and her daughter Hailey have found the house of there dreams. They have everything about it except for kitchen which just stock at the 80’s. Alyssa: The use cabinets, they use countertops, they use backsplash. We had this excellent farm house table that we’ve brought when we move here. My dream would be to kind of repurpose this thing and make it like a functioning island and make it a part of the space. I really don’t know how to do that. Male: We are going to start looking for the salvage place and we are going to try to find some old and new post you know, raising up the bar countertop height and that’s the base skip. This is pretty much what you got now, it’s the table. Jimmy Little: Still they’re going to be a table when we are done but it’s going to be a much more interesting, much taller table. We are going to take off all the square legs and then we are going to take, actually this guys here which are hold and post for from a deck. Hailey: Okay. Jimmy Little: And we’ve flip in up side down so the ball is the bottom and I’m going to turn the table legs. Hailey: Cool. Jimmy Little: Because they’re tall enough to make it the counter height for you guys want in there. This is what we are going to end up with but we have a lot of work to do. Hailey: Okay. Jimmy Little: We are going to do mortis and tenant joints. This is a tenant and this is the mortis they fits together with nothing but glue and it’s a really, really strong joint to whole table legs to the table’s curt which is the board that runs around under the top and that’s we are going to end up with but we’ve go a lot of cutting to do to get there. Hailey: Oh really? Jimmy Little: So let’s god down here and will take this table apart, all those screws there in a little pocket start bold and out. And we are going to put this over under its legs and we are head over to chop saw and get those deck spindles and cut down in the legs. Hailey: Alright. Jimmy Little: Deck post and table leg like magic. This is the tenement jig its called and it makes tenants. So this is really just the standard drill press and all of this gray attachment is called the mortising jig and basically turns a round hole and do a square hole and go for it going to push down hard. Hailey: I think we’ve found my calling. Jimmy Little: There you go and then gets it. Alright we are ready to glue this thing right now. This is the moment of truth here if this things is don’t fit. Then the post area just like that, that’s it right there beauty. Come on. Hailey: Under the table? Jimmy Little: Well the screws going from here. And here it is look at that. That was perfect. Gina: That is gorgeous. Male: That’s great guys. Let’s finish up our project. This house is amazing but the kitchen is didn’t fit and now I think your kitchen has more character that it was lacking before. You have this for micro cabinets that you didn’t like, kitchen is kind of blow because of that. We went and found this old windows, buildings cabinets to make them look a little rougher and a little more age in vintage. Gina: You know we can go to sleep tonight knowing that we did something kind for the earth and that’s cool. Male: This thing was the table that you had had and now I see prop table for you kitchen was great, awesome and oh yeah and the backsplash. Gina: It just giving this room a new life. Male: And then with this which is one of my favorite things that I’ve ever done, couple of old doors that we join together and now you’ve got a new countertop in here but how do you feel that? What do you think about them? Gina: I’m blow away seriously, this is beyond my wildest dreams I mean we have a couple of ideas that what we could do but you know— Male: Awesome guys.
