And these coasters to go with it. http://www.instructables.com/id/Piano-Key-Coasters/
Well the piano lid was free. GOOD luck finding one for free, or at all.
Everything els came out to around 70$
2x4 was around $4
Each leg was $2.65
After glue an other stuff it was around $70.
Of course it could be done cheaper though.
Step 1: TOOLS AND MATERIALS
The hardest thing to get will be of course a piano lid. This one was found in some ones addic and had been there for a long time.
I bought these at home depot. For this coffee table I bought 14" high legs.
I got a cheap 2x4 from Home depot.
LEG MOUNTING PLATES
You can find these right next to the legs in home depot.
You may or may not need this. The lid I have had scratches an the clear coat was coming off.
ODDERLESS MINERAL SPIRITS
To clean the stripper off.
RED MHOGONY STAIN
I used this on the leggs for a nice dark stain.
POLYURETHANE GLOSS SEALER
After it is finished you want to us a good Polyurethane sealer to water proof an scratch proof the table.
You probably do not need this.
I am not sure what size screws I used. The mounting plates come with screws but you will also need screws to mount hte supports to the table. I have about a million screws here an just went through them all an used what I needed. I appologize for not having the corrects sizes, but it isn't hard to figuer out.
LIGHT SAND PAPER
Plastic scraper for stripper
Alot of Rags
I think this covers all the Materials an Tools. I am sorry If I missed some thing. This is the first thing I have built out of wood, so terms and perfection isn't my thing. I am new to it. Hopefully I don't get tomany people bashing me about it. I know how there are many perfectionest on here.
