3rd project is a simple accent table for the nursery to go along with the diaper changing table I made. This was a quick one, made out of some leftover pine from the last project with 2×2s for the legs.
Firsts with this project:
Bevel cuts with the table saw
using the taper jig for the table legs
cutting a circle with a jig saw and circle jig (did not quite go as planned, melted one blade…luckily I did a test run on plywood)
I had a few quick questions/need advice. What would be the typical way to connect the bevel cuts to the legs? I had a really tough time with connecting the aprons at the top because there was not a good way of clamping to ensure no movement while I was gluing/screwing it in (used pocket screws for the apron). Is there a better way? I ended up having the bevel cuts not quite at the inside corners of the legs making it not quite square.
The bottom went a lot easier because I attached the shelf to the legs and then the apron to the legs which made it easier to attach the apron.
