Hello all.. Its Saturday Feb 13th the day before Valentines Day and I’ve been very very busy building for spring.. The orders pile up quickly. I’m making raised garden beds.

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.
