Hayrake Table Cutlist


Hayrake table cutlist

Instructor, nancy Hiller

Lumber (species of student’s choice):
8 board feet of 8/4 or 12/4 which is available locally
50 board feet of 5/4
10 board feet of 6/4
Dowels in the species (and diameter) the student wishes to use. Students may also make their own dowels if the school has a dowel cutting plate.

These quantities reflect an allowance for waste based on my experience and are for a table with top dimensions of 36” x 64”.

**Before purchasing your lumber, please check that the quantities for roughsawn board footage will suffice for the dimensions of YOUR table, using the cutlist below as a basic guide.**

Cutlist (Note: these are finished sizes. It would be better to bring lumber that is close to these dimensions and finish milling at the school.)

Top: 1/1” x 36” x 64”

Long stretcher rail: 2/1” x 2” x 50” (overlength) (Note: The table will only have one, but I recommend bringing enough for two because this is the part most likely to have to be redone.)
