Ever look on the internet and see pictures of furniture and say, "i think i can build that". well i did that :) i saw this coffee table online and i really liked it http://www.upcyclethat.com/crate-coffee-table/2575/ if you dont want to go to the link to take a look at it the picture is posted to see what i am imitating. Built this coffee table over the weekend from scratch. Turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. It cost me roughly $50 build.

Materials: 1 1/4in finishing nails, 1" in wood screws, wood glue, 1-16inX21/32X8ft board, 4-2ftX2ft 1/4in plywood, wood stain
Step 1: Cuts
Cut the 8ft board into 8 1ft sections. Cut the 2ftx2ft ply into 4inX2ft strips.
