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.
Cut the pieces for the legs and the side frames. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the frame pieces. Attach to the legs as shown using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws.
Cut the pieces for the stretchers. Drill pocket holes in each end. Secure to the legs as shown using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws.
Cut the pieces for the slat supports. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes along one long edge of each piece. Attach to the middle and lower stretchers using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws, making sure the bottom face is flush with the bottom face of the stretchers.
Cut the pieces for the slats. Attach to the supports using glue and countersunk 1-1/4” screws. There will be ½” spacing between each piece.
Cut the pieces for the X. Cut the angles as shown – they are NOT 45 deg angles! Draw a line at the measurement shown, then draw another line from the corner of the board to the opposite end of the line in order to make the angle. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in the straight edges of the shorter pieces. Maintain the dimensions shown in drawing 2 and secure using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws.
Attach the X using toenailed brad nails through the X into the stretcher.
Cut the piece for the top. Secure using glue and 1-1/4” brad nails. Add the angle brackets to the upper and lower edges, if desired.
Attach the casters according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired. For Finishing Tips and Tricks visit my Finishing School
