Ironbark Side Table Top For Ikea Malm

A replacement tabletop for the Ikea malm side table. Made from Red Ironbark 90x22mm floor boards.

Laminate the panels with glue and clamps. Use a 35x18mm beam of merbau for extra support.

Fill any gaps with glue and woodfill

Apply 3 coats of danish oil spaced 24hrs. Wait a week till the danish oil is completely dry. Apply 4-5 coats of Minmax wipe on poly every 8hrs.

Remove the original table top, measure out the hole spacing and drill into the hardwood top. The new top should fall right into place.
