Ikea products have names and I think my side table made from a crate deserves a name too.
Step 1: Materials:
One small crate or wooden box
Small table legs and brackets
The crate I used was an old wooden butter box my which my grandfather had attached a hinged lid (which I removed). Granddad had kept bits of string, rope and twine in this wooden box. These must have been special bits of rope and twine that warranted being kept in a special box. When I am a granddad, I too will have my own box of string, rope and twine.
The legs and brackets were salvaged from a coffee table found in a rubbish skip but these can be found at a hardware store.
