Today I will show you the way that I make quick pedestals. First you will need to know your size pedestal that you are going to make. The size that I’m making is 8 x 24 x 8, and I use MDF, which is medium-density fiberboard. The MDF will give you are more uniform surface then ply-wood.
Step 1: Cutting the Boards to Size
Rip down the last piece of MDF for the top of the pedestal, For the top of the pedestal you want the board to be 1/8 lager on all four sides. Start at the table saw move the fance over to 9 1/4 and rip down the MDF. Measures out the 9 1/4, make your last cut on the chop saw.
