Since then my wife has been wanting our own set so we can take them out when we have company over. So I threw together another set in about 10 hours (see below). Since, our boards came out so nice I thought I would build another and make a Instructable on how to do it.
I hope you like this instructable and feel free to give me some feedback.
Step 1: Materials:
(2) 1/2" 2'x4' pre-cut boards
(4) 1"x4"x8' pine boards
(1 box) 1-5/8 drywall screws
(4) 3/8" rounded head bolts
(8) 3/8" washers
(8) 3/8" Hex nuts
Step 2: Cutting the Wood
(4) 22 and 1/2"
(2) 33 and 1/2"
The 4' pieces are the sides of the boxes
The 22 and 1/2" pieces are the tops and bottoms of the boxes
The 33 and 1/2" pieces are the Legs
The last cut is done at a 45 degree angle.
Set your miter saw to cut at 45 degrees. You will cut the 33 and 1/2 board in half at 45 degrees. This will create the slope for the leg.
The easiest way to do this is to lay the board on the table.
On the edge closest to you measure 18 1/2" from the left and make a mark.
On the edge way from you measure 15" from the left and make a mark
Now draw a line between the two points, and cut with the miter saw.
