Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the
GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead.

Build the Leg Base: Cut your Upper Table Supports to size and fasten the yellow boards to the Center Support using a
Kreg Jig® set for 1 1/2″ stock and your 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to then fasten to the Center Post using 3” Screws. Miter the Outside Edges of the Upper Leg Bases at a 45 Degree Angle. I have provided the measurements for top and bottom edges to make this easy for you. Fasten the Center Post to the Center Leg Base (red) using 3″ Screws, secure the leg base halves (orange) to the center leg base (red) using a Kreg Jig® set for 1 1/2″ stock and your 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws from underneath.
Cut and fasten the Trusses in place. They will connect to the upper leg bases and the table supports with 3″ screws at an angle into the beams, or by using your
Kreg Jig® set for 1 1/2″ stock and your 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and glue. Each Truss will be cut at approximately the angle shown in the image below. However before you go ahead with those angled cuts, you should measure down 10 1/2” from the top and out 6 1/2” then mark your boards at the appropriate place to be sure your trusses are exact for your build. For the bottom trusses, you will measure up 12” and out 3 1/2” to find your angles and they should be somewhere in the ballpark of the numbers I indicate below.
Add the Solid Leg Base: Cut the pieces at a 45 Degree Angle on the outside edges, and glue and screw together and then glue and screw to the existing Upper Leg Base. Use 1 1/4” Screws to fasten the bottom leg base to the middle leg base, and use 2 1/2” screws to fasten the Center Leg Base to the Upper Leg Base.
Create the Segmented Leg Base: This will be very similar to the leg base above, only it will have a space in the middle so that it can sit astride the solid leg base in the step above. Miter the outside edges at 45 Degree Angles and fasten the Lower Leg Base to the Center Leg bases using 1 1/4” Screws and glue. It might be a bit of a tight squeeze to get inside here depending on your drill, but if you created pocket holes in the step above, Use your
Kreg Jigs®set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue to fasten the unit together. If you prefer to use a countersink bit and 2” wood screws, predrill and fasten in that manner. You may want to consider this as a possible plan b anyhow if you have a large bulky drill like I do!
Attach the Segmented Leg Bases to the Solid Leg Base: Use your
Kreg Jig® set for 1 1/2″ stock and your 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and glue to fasten to the existing Solid Leg Base you attached in the previous steps.
Construct the Top: Use your
Kreg Jig® set for 1 1/2″ stock and your 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and glue to construct the top. Place your pocket holes and screws in every other board (blue) as shown below. Begin with fastening the 5 boards in the center at 48” in length together, then fasten the outer middle (40”) and outer boards (30”) in place. Your table top will step down a bit to save you form waste, then you will mark out a circle with a radius of 24” (48” diameter circle). Once you have all of your boards joined and your circle drawn, you can cut around your markings, to create your circle using a jig saw. Once your circular top has been carved and sanded, attach to the table supports from underneath using 2 1/2″ screws. The Solid running table support should run perpendicular to the table boards so that it can provide the greatest amount of support to the table top.
