Cut your boards to the appropriate length and bevel the outside edges on both sides of the top and one side of the legs at 45 Degrees. Fasten using your Kreg Jig set to 1 1/2″ stock or use 2 1/2″ Screws from the top down into the legs. This can be built without beveled edges, you would simply need to shorten the legs by 1 1/2″ if you plan to keep it the same height. Height is adjustable if you prefer more space between the bed and the table. Just be sure you account for this prior to cutting your boards.
Attach casters to the legs, and fill screws holes, sand and finish as desired! Easy Peasy…and so convenient for reading, working on a laptop or breakfast in bed!
Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired. For Finishing Tips and Tricks visit my Finishing School
