Anne's DIY Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Prepare the tabletop thoroughly. Anne chose to sand and round off the entire tabletop.
  2. If necessary: Mark where cutouts should be. Anne had to make some cutouts with the jigsaw because there were some pipes in the way.
  3. Build the support structure. Since the tabletop is quite heavy, Anne chose to create a sturdy support structure. She mounted 2 cross beams against the wall with a hammer drill. Then she could mount the long beams. Easy and practical!
  4. Mounting the tabletop also went smoothly. It is recommended to lift the tabletop onto the support system with 2 people. Unless you're really strong.
  5. And voila.. now the setup can begin!
