This was pretty fun. Originally I wanted to build something much more elaborate, but I realized I needed to start a little closer to earth when I went with the cutting diagrams to buy the wood. When I could barely figure those out, I decided to just buy a bunch of 2×4’s and some 3/4” MDF and see what I could come up with.
I basically just watched a video on youtube of someone build something similar. So I drew up some simple plans and got to work. (This was before I found lumberjocks, and sketchup).
The joints holding the frame of the top and the legs together are half laps, and then the top is just screwed in. The bottom shelf is just resting on the 2×4s that connect the legs.
Lots of screws, a little glue, and a whole lot of persuading.
