​But first let me share a bit of mine with you before you go skipping away...

I purchased two packages of lit decorative tree picks (there are 3 to a package) in a style I liked, as you see above, and a package of assorted zip ties in browns and greens. 

All three picks per package are connected with electrical wire so they are really a long string of picks rather than individual picks. To arrange them in a circular shape I wrapped the cord around the stems to 'hide' it a tad and keep it out of the way.

Since I needed to wrap the cord anyhow, I figured I might as well use it to help me secure the picks to eachother slightly so it would be easier to secure them later.

I placed each new pick under the pick before it and lined up the top portion of the stem on the previous pick (where the branches end) with the bottom portion of the stem on the next pick (where the branches start) so you wouldn't have any 'blank' spots.

Celebrate 

Then I fluffed the branches to hide my cord and connections.

Once I had all three picks from one package wrapped up together it looked like the top image above. Then I simply needed to add in the three picks from the next package! When I opened the second package I worked in the opposite direction so my cords were near eachother when this project was finished. I began by placing the first pick of the second package on the first pick of the first package and worked in the opposite direction until I was finished wrapping the cord.

Then I used the short zip ties in green to secure my picks all the way around and then I was ready to hang her up and enjoy.

I wanted a side table that was not too wide to fit under a window and the Tryde Console Table really fit the bill.  I built it exactly to the plan dimensions but I altered the process a little.  I got the plan from Ana Whites site at www.ana-white.com/2010/01/plans/tryde-console-table

 

Some of my methods and process...

1.  First I built the leg assemblies including the side apron, top leg support, and the bottom stretcher.  I used PH screws for bottom stretch.
2.  Then I attached the two leg assemblies together with the front and back aprons and the bottom stretcher.
3. Separately I constructed the top including the breadboards using PH screws.  The tabletop boards are connected to the breadboards with eight PH screws each.  The table boards are held together with PH screws.
4. Once the initial sanding and staining was completed I attached the top to the bottom assembly using eight screws through the tabletop supports from the bottom and then eight screws through the top into the top leg supports. Note I did not attach the breadboards directly to the legs as instructed as they are secured to the top with the PH screws.  I can always add the screws later if necessary.  

Instead of countersinking the screws to the top leg supports I used black (3 1/2 ") PH screws and let the screws remain visible on the top of the table.  I think it looks nice and  sort of industrial.
5.  Then final staining, rubdowns, and touch-ups.

Note:  I did not glue the top to the base just so repairs will be easy to make should over time the boards warp or crack.  Just remove the eight top screws and lift the top off, make the fix, and screw it back on..

It took a couple of days but it is worthwhile spending the time for accurate measurements, squaring, and finishing.  The results are first-class.

Estimated Cost 

About $30

Length of Time 

A good two days.  Take your time accurate measurements, cutting. squaring, and finishing and you will end up with a great result.

Lumber Used 

All pine from the big orange box store.

Finishing Technique 

Minwax red mahogany.  Three applications that included:

1. Apply the stain, wait five or so minutes, and wipe it off.

2. Let it dry and then wipe with 000 steel wool

3. After the third time just rub with a clean old t-shirt

The final result is a deep but slightly shiny staining.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you from The Design Confidential Family! This year in particular I feel as though I have so much to be thankful for. Topping that list are the addition of baby bird Penn (yes that is what we named him, not sure I mentioned it) to our already wonderful little family, and all of you who hang out with us here each day! You make my world go round and I feel so very loved! I hope in the coming year, you all feel that same love and appreciation from us as well...beginning with a little early Holiday Celebration in the next week or so.
