This project was my first attempt at building a piece of furniture for inside the house. Growing up in the construction field I have done my share of “rough carpentry” work and wanted to try something new in my spare time. My wife found a table like this at Pottery Barn that she really wanted and I thought for the price I could try and make one myself. This was the beginning of my new hobby which has turned my garage into a shop full of sawdust. Being my first project, I made the table out of pine not only to cut down on the cost but I wasn’t sure on how many mistakes I was going to make. I used a dado to join the 2×6’s as well as the 2×4’s along the edge. I also used Kreg pocket hole screws to attach the legs,supports and top. It turned out pretty good and she was very pleased with the final result. On to my next one!
Thanks for looking.
