- tape measure
- drill bits
- draw slide
- power saw
Step 1: Building the Legs and Base
i then took a pallet and placed 3 planks side by side. this is how i determinded the length of the table. i then used another plank as the back and another for the sides and little sections of the front.
i pre drilled and screwed all of this together. Because its hard wood it is rather tough and needed to be pre drilled
Step 2: Building the Draws
for the slides i had one set laying around which i used and another i had to buy.
i started to build both draws from some off cuts of redgum flooring that was left over on a jobsite i was on. i built the draws from the floorboards and the front panel is the redgum pallet plank.
Step 3: The Hole in the Top
i cut the hole in the top and then underneath i just had two bits of timber for walls which also helped to fix the draw slides to. this was done from redgum decking, same material as the draw.
Step 4: Staining the Table
once i had found the perfect stain/varnish it was time to give it a coat
dont forget to sand! sand sand sand. it gives a better finish. but depending on how rustic you want it. more rustic- less sanding.(gets rid of sharp edges and splinters)
The stain i ended up choosing was a jarrah stain.
