Step 2: Cutting

Time to decide what shape you want the table to be. Then cut it and the legs down to size. I decided to make a longer thinner table, but you can cut it to any size you like. I cut it in half hot dog style then cut the top square off. I would have like to leave it on but I was afraid it would make the table to long and weak.

Step 3: Some more cutting.

I took the inside part of the door( seen in the picture from the last step), and cut it into slits to line the outside of my table. Not a necessary step, but it added a lot to my table. Makes it not as wide and added more of a wood work look to the table.

The inner piece can just be broken out by pulling the door apart.
