I made this end table out of one pine 2×4x12 ($3.49) and a $5 2’x2’ 1/2” birch plywood. I cut two 24” pieces of the 2×4 then ripped them down to 6/4 square then coved the edges at the router table. Then with the remaining 2×4, I re-sawed it at the tablesaw to about 11/16” which was used for the rails. The top was just 1/4” rounded over with the router. Add some stain with 2 coats of semigloss polyurethane and I have a perfectly sturdy square endtable for CHEAP!
