Instructions

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. My contact info can be found in the menu of my site.

Step 1

Cut the pieces for the feet. Cut the arc in each end using a jigsaw and maintaining 20-1/4” between the arcs on each foot. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in one long end of each leg to be used as the top of the frame.

Cut the pieces for the side frame. Drill pocket holes in each end. Attach to the feet as shown using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the stretchers. Drill pocket holes in each end as well as one long end of each piece that will be used as the top stretchers (the pocket holes will enable the top to be attached to the frame). Attach as shown to the sides using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the dividers. Drill pocket holes in each end. Attach as shown to the sides using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the small Xs. Cut the angles as shown. Drill pocket holes in the ends of the shorter pieces as indicated and attach to the larger piece using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.

Position the Xs in the side frames with the pocket holes facing in. Attach using glue and toenailed 2” screws through the X into the feet. Use longer screws if necessary.

Cut the pieces for the top. Spread glue on the face of one of the pieces and position the other piece on top. Wiggle it around a little to create suction and clamp until dry. Insert a few brad nails the hold the piece together. Apply edge banding and trim away the excess.

Position the top on the table frame with ½” overlapping each side and ¼” overlapping the edge of each foot piece.
