I only had 15 minutes to make a table and I was at Techshop, www.techshop.ws so I knew I could do it. I had some 5/8" MDF that I cut into a 21" square and cut some 2" x 4" pine into legs at 20" long. I cut 3" MDF skirts to go down the side of the table to stabilize and secure the legs. I glued and clamped the skirts to the top piece of MDF and glued and clamped the legs to the skirt as well. Then I brad nailed everything together, and in 10 minutes I had a free table made out of scrap wood.
