Step 1: Step 1: Materials
Gather some 2x4" pallets and cut four 20" inch boards.
Cut two 7" long braces and two 11" long braces.
Step 2: Step 2: Cutting the Legs
Measure 3" down from one end of the leg and use a speed square to mark the point. Then, measure 1 3/4" from the opposite edge and mark the point. I use a bandsaw to cut the legs out.
Step 3: Step 3: Sand the Legs
After I finished cutting the legs out, I use the orbital sander on them.
Step 4: Step 4: Make Pocket Holes
Use the Kreg Jig to screw pocket holes in the braces.
Step 5: Step 5: Put Together
I then glued and screwed the braces to the legs. After that, I clamp them together. I use 1 3/4" pocket hole screws.
Step 6: Step 6: Final
Used the table saw to cut 14 3/4" frame, then I glued and screwed it to the top.
