Whenever I have an idea to build something, often the first piece of paper I see is the post-it note on my desk, I aggressively put pen to paper trying to get as many details onto a 3x3 inch note pad as I possibly can.... You guys, that Post-It is way too small for my really big idea!
With the availability of GIANT 3M Post-It Easel pads, I was able to make MY WHOLE WORK-SURFACE a great, big, sticky note! WIN!
I used the following for this project:
- Table Saw
NOTE: You could sub the 3/4" and 1/4" plywood for 1", or thicker, piece of plywood. The IKEA table legs I used needed to be anchored to a 1" piece of wood.

Step 1: Going to IKEA
GO TO IKEA WITH A PLAN.
The IKEA website makes it pretty easy to plan ahead, I was able to pick out the table legs I wanted and even figure out where in the store I could get them. All I had to do is select which location I planned to go to, and it told me that I could find them in Aisle 8, Bin 16 of the warehouse section.
I was in and out of the store in 10 minutes. VICTORY!
Step 2: Measure Post-IT Pad
To do this, I had to tear up the cardboard around the bound edge of the note pad.
