I got a 2x12 for free at Lowes a few weeks ago, it had to be cut in half in order to move it and was quite beat up. I didn’t know what to do with it but wanted to try something new and more challenging. I finally decided to make a small end table.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

Tools that I used:

  • Jobsite Table Saw
  • Miter Saw
  • Router
  • Sander
  • Hammer
  • Chisels
  • Lots of clamps
  • Planer
  • Drill Press
  • Tape Measure


  • A 2x12
  • Glue
  • Various screws
<p>It if can dent easily, you can add something on top - maybe glass, or just a harder wood. </p><p>If you have some birch plywood, you can carve in the top, and glue the plywood so it doesn't even stick out, hopefully, if that makes sense... :)</p>
