    Tip 2 years ago on Step 2

    Suggestion: instead of creating "butt" joints and having to use "L" Brackets, you could make 45 degree miter cuts in the 2x4 (like a picture frame) and then you can just screw them down directly into the top of the 4x4 post.

    Also, maybe an Ikea Hack...Buy one of those 10$ Lack tables and just cut out the centre. Might be a cheaper alternative.
