Topic tags/keywords: oak question

I was enjoying my favorite pastime of wandering through the tools and lumber section of the local home-improvement store and I stumbled upon some nice oak pieces. of wood. I took a closer look and a night stand idea just came to me. But I need some help still. I bought two 2”x2”x3’ oak for legs, two 1”x6”x4’ board for the underside around the top, and a 3/4”x2’x2’ plywood board. I also have some oak corner molding i am using for the edges. I was just wondering what you guys would do. Oh the final dimensions I would like it to be is about 16 or so inches high, with an 18”x20” top. Thanks

With that amount of wood you may be limiting yourself on what is possible.

You might consider something similar to what I made as a plant stand

That is actually the exact way I pictured the stand. But How do I make the underside and attach the legs? Also what kind of joints did you use for the leg supports?

I used Dowels for the bottom leg supports, the apron at the top is attached to the legs with biscuits, and the top attached to all that with dowels in the top of each leg.
