Well anyways. So because of that. My projects have been put on hold. Luckily, I was doing a lot of stuff before so I'm able to dig into my ol' archives :) So this next project is old to me...but new to you! You may have seen it in some of my bedroom pictures. Now I'm going to tell you how to make it :)
Okay. So to get from wood pieces to beautiful table, here's the supplies you'll need:
One 1x9 board
Drill/screws/counter sink bit
Step 1. Take one 1x3 and one 1x2 piece. Stack the 1x2 on top of the 1x3 edges meeting so that it creates a 90 degree angle. Secure this in place with the wood glue.
Step 2. Do this to all the pieces. You should have 4 'legs' once you're done. Let them dry and then counter sink 1 inch or 3/4 inch screws into the top and bottom of each piece to make sure its secure. Fill holes with wood filler.
Step 3. Lay two legs down facing each other, 1x3 piece on the ground. Place a 1x4 cut at 23 inches on the top of each one. Secure each leg to the end of the 1x4 using a 3/4 screw. Do this with the other two legs and other 1x4. Make sure the edges are flush.
Step 4. On one set of legs. Use two 1x4s cut at 5 1/2 inches and secure to the 1x2 part of the leg on the top, right next to the long 1x4 you just secured. Then secure a piece of a 1x3 cut at 7 inches on the bottom of each leg equidistant. I put min about 5 inches above the bottom. Now mark the middle of each 1x3. Cut another 1x3 at 21.5 inches.
Next you just need to secure the top! Make sure you measure so that its centered on the table base. My 1x9 is cut at 40 inches. Counter sink a screw on the top into the base. I did that four times to make sure it was really on there.
Now fill all the holes with wood filler then sand. Now you are ready to paint or stain!
I used dark walnut for my stain. Once the stain was dry I put two layers of polyurethane on the top.
You can see it here. And I designed this to be a little taller and added some molding and paint to it in this project. See? easy to change up however you want :) Have fun with it!
