Looking through several DIY Blogs I found one true inspiring page. The Rogue Engineer
And his plans for a side table. http://rogueengineer.com/diy-lybrook-side-table-plans
Following the well laid out plans and cut instructions I prepared my wood and ready for assembly.
The only problem I had was cutting a 50 degree cut for the X on the table. SO I improvised and could only do a 45 degree cut.
The other modification I made was the top. I used some reclaimed fence boards that I had.
Before I assembled I sanded and stained each piece of wood a dark walnut.
Once the base was assembled I was able to choose the fence boards I wanted for the top, and once again sanded and stained the boards.
Once I attached the top, the boards were uneven so I turned the table upside down and use my small circular saw to cut the boards the same length.
* Next time I make one i’m going to take pictures of how I cut the sides.
Finished Side Table with cedar top.
