the other day I was asked to be a YouTube Partner and I need to get some more views and subscribers to become a partner so please watch my video and if possible subscribe!!!
Yesterday I built a little table that I can use to assembly my small projects. This table ended up so sturdy I ended up on top of the table jumping up and down with 10lbs dumbbells in each hand! I way about 159lbs so that a lot of force!! It is perfectly level and all I used to make this table was some 2×4’s some 2×6”s and a broken down book shelf. I used the shelves as the table top. I constructed the legs out of 2×4’s and at the bottom of each leg I cut another 2×4 into 4 6in pieces and screwed them to the bottom of the leg to thicken the bottom of the leg and for more support. I simply used overlay joints to attach the legs together and to make the top frame. I also attached a 2×6 on the front and back for extra support and i used finishing nails to attach the table top. I also used glue and 2 1/2 in screws to attach my joints.

Here is the video I have posted on YouTube for my desk/workbench

If I had any idea how to subscribe I would. Good job on the table, I have about four tables made from scrap wood just to put stuff somewhere. One just for cleaning greasy tools and things like chainsaws.

Excellent way to recycle the shelf. You can obtain a bit more rigidity by adding a 2×4 across the top of the 6” leg blocks. This would then allow for an under-table shelf, if so desired. Keep up the good work.

nobuckle- I was actually planning on doing that but this desk was designed for me to pull a chair up to it and assemble smaller projects.

It is fun and encouraging to see younger people getting into woodworking and sharing it too.

I guess I don’t understand what the whole “YouTube Partner” thing is? I have been pressed by them to put advertisements in my videos is that what it means?
