Things you'll need:
2"x8"x12' (cut down to 2 58" peices) $11
(3) 2"x4"x8' (check for straightness and no twists) $9
1.5", 2" & 2.5" wood screws
drill & bits
10" miter saw
clamps/vise or my stanley folding workbench
6" L bracket (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Simpson-Strong-Tie-Z-MA...
wood pegs or dowel (mine are 3/8")
Lay your 2 58" sections on a workbench or sawhorse and drill the hole size of your wooden pegs on the inner sides of each board. I used 4 and with some wood glue and overnight clamping, it was very solid with no concern they would seperate. Before applying glue, put the sections together and make sure they are level. if needed, you can bore out the holes. Dont worry if the pegs are a little loose. A little wood glue will fix that issue when you're leveled out and its clamped together.
take your leg sections and put a peice of wood at the point they meet to raise them up. (important note for the 4 bottom leg peices: on the 45* bevel cut at the tip will also have a 10* miter cut. this is so that the legs flare outward for added balance [see first pic]. 2 leg peices should have a 10* miter cut and 2 leg peices should have a -10* miter cut all with a 45* bevel cut)
Now predrill some holes and use 1.5" or 2" deck screws with some wood glue.
Do the same for the other half of the leg section.
After everything is glued and screwed down, check the height of the legs from the table top and levels of each. If needed, sand down the bottom of the legs to even them out.
Lay the L bracket down and mark out 4 holes. Drill through the wood and use some 2" nut and bolt screws with lock washers. Mine looked like #10's. Don't tighten them just yet as you'll need to remove it anyways when you stain or paint this.
Once its all leveled, sanded and woodfilled if that's your preference, leave it overnight for the glue to dry and get ready for some staining or painting tomorrow.
I hope you like it and your build goes smoothly. Don't forget, measure twice, cut once. :)
