I had some scrap cedar decking so I made a table top for my mom and doll table for my younger sister. I did not not stain and paint the tables. My mom and sister did.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Find Wood
We have a huge burn pile in our yard. That is where I got my wood from
Step 2: Start Drawing the Table
I put a nail in the middle of the boards and put my tape measure on it. Then I locked It at 8" and put my pencil there. Now I just made a circle.
Step 3: Cutting
I use a jigsaw to cut the table. You could also use a bandsaw.
Step 4: Sanding and Making Pocket Holes
Step 5: Putting Together and Staining or Painting
Screw boards together and stain or paint.
Step 6: Doll Table
If you have a daughter or sister who loves dolls you might want to make this.
Step 7: Extra Parts for Doll Table
You will need a 1" tall piece of beam. You will also need to cut 4 legs that are 6 1/2" tall. Now screw beam to bottom of table and screw legs to that.
Step 8: Doll Chairs
Very simple. Just piece of cedar board 8 3/8" tall for back. The seat is just cedar decking 3 7/8" long and front is same but only 3 3/4" tall. Now just screw together and your done. Please vote.
