Todd C. of Florida recently decided to refinish his old oak table. He turned to Osborne Wood Products to help him with this project. Let’s take a look at what Todd has to say about his project:

“About 33 years ago my wife and I purchased an old oak table from a friend. The table has always been used in a breakfast area or gathering place for our family.  Recently our grandson and great-grandson moved in with us we decided to refinish the table.

The baby found tablecloths too tempting to pull.  I attempted to refurbish the slides, but after many hours I decided that they needed to be replaced.  I remembered seeing table slides in an Osborne catalog I had received and went to the website to see what was available.  The old slides were 32 inches long.  A custom set that size would cost over $600.

I talked with Cindy in customer service and she worked with the measurements to come up with the appropriate size of standard slides.  By moving them a little outboard of where the original ones were the table is now extremely stable and easy to adjust.”

Todd ordered a pair of Osborne 26 x 2 3/8″ Equalizer Slides with a 51″ opening (Part #9053).

Thank you for sharing these pictures with us Todd. We hope your family enjoys this beautiful table!
