Materials –
There are a variety of materials both woods and tools required throughout this project to have a successful completion. There are 3 different woods needed for each section of the table. The woods and sized required are: ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE IN MILLIMETERS.
  * Table top: Wood -   Hoop Pine – 90 x 19 x 4/360 (WxTxL)
  * Securing Plate: Wood – Ply Wood – 120x120
  * Turned centre: Wood -   Meranti – 65x65x450

There are several materials needed in the process of this Prayer table. Screws are needed to connect pieces together and ensure a firm hold together. Two screws in each leg to be screwed into the turned centre and 4 screws to connect the securing plate to the table top.
Also PVA glue is needed to assist joints and give them a firmer hold.
Tools and Equipment –
  * Try square – used to ensure that cutting lines on the wood were accurate at 90 degrees. This makes the project look professional and precise.
  * Steel Rule –To ensure markings marked on the project were accurate to required measurements.
  * Tenon saw – used to cut the wood into measurements from the plan which was given.
  * Marking Gauge – used to creating a mark on the turned centre so when planning I didn’t plane past the mark
  * Jack Plane – Once the marks were set...
