The Nintendo 64 or N64 was released in North America in 1996 and had so many amazing games such as "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time", ""Super Smash Bros.", and "Golden Eye 007".
A few months ago I found a picture of a table like this on Facebook. I thought to myself, "I could make that.". This was around the same time that I was looking for Christmas gifts for my family. I feel bad that in my haste to get this finished I missed taking pictures of a few steps. I hope that with my documentation we can fill in the blanks.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
- 2 - 6x6x8 foot fence posts
- 32 - 3 inch grabber screws
- 1 - cheap 4 inch phillips screw driver (the handle will need to be cut short)
- Wood Glue
- 2 Cans Wood filler
- 2 Cans Spray Paint (each color)
Step 2: Cut and Plane Wood
Cut wood to 4 lengths of 17 3/4 and 4 lengths of 19 3/4.
Plane wood from the 5.5 inches down to only 5 inches.
Of the boards that are 19 3/4 inches long, cut 45 degree angles on the ends. These will be the diagonal connecting lines as part of the "N".
***This is the step I didn't take a pictures of***
Drill 32 holes in total (8 in each diagonal piece) deep enough for the screws to hold the N together.
Step 3: Assembly
Glue and assemble the eight pieces two at a time (a corner piece and diagonal piece). The reason you want to assemble it into four identical pieces is so that you can do as much of the assembly using a drill and not have to use a screwdriver.
Step 4: Fill Holes, Gaps and Sand
Once it's fully assembled, check all of the joints. Anywhere that there is a gap, fill it. Fill all of the holes used for screws as well.
Sand everything smooth.
