This is the second project that I did this week. I used all scrap that I had laying around the shop. 2×4’s and sand ply. This was a great project for me as it tested my skill level by having to mill all the lumber except for the top. I cut the legs down to 1.5” square and the stringers between the legs are 1” square. Total height is 26”, length is 48” and 22” deep. The top is 1/2 sand ply with a round over on the edges. As I mentioned in the blog I went backwards with attaching the top. I will just fill in the nail holes and put a coat of stain on it when it gets warmer out. Enjoy.

it’s amazing how such thin pieces of wood can be so strong when assembled properly. Nice work.
