    Easy Little End Tables in 2 Hours

    Hi John, sorry for the slow reply. I actually don't remember! We have a million different leftover screws from various projects and I probably just grabbed what was easy and what made sense to me. Likely 2 - 2.5 wood screws of some non-special variety.

    Great job! It's such a simple little piece, but would work perfectly for your plant. Glad you found it helpful, and thanks for sharing the photos! :)

    Hey ToddR66, sorry for the delayed reply. My husband picked up a bunch of free pallets from the back of a UPS warehouse. I honestly don't remember what stain it was...I had a few leftover cans of various types. My best guess is it was probably a walnut gel stain that I just ragged on to give them some colour.

    Sure. If you look at the end of Step 3, you'll see where the tabletop or "cap" is put together - basically a square box, and the table top pieces sitting across the top of of the square. Then in Step 4, I laid the cap on the ground (upside-down) and placed the 4 legs inside the box, one in each corner, and then screwed them in place. Then you can turn it over and stand it up. If you want to add the shelf like I did half way down the legs, measure the inside dimensions (how far apart are the legs from each other?) and make another "cap" that size. The lower shelf or "cap" will just be a bit smaller than the table top one, and make it with no overhang,... ie: cut the top pieces to the exact length of your square box. Does this help you? Sorry I'm not very t...

Sorry I'm not very technical at all and tend to go very much by feel.

    Thank you :) Glad you like them. They were surprisingly simple and I loved that I could just cut just about everything in half and stick it together without doing much measuring. I'm all for cutting corners and doing everything super simply! And I understand about spring - my pile of pallets is all under snow right now too!

    This looks awesome! I like how you wrapped the pieces around the bottom shelf. Great job. So simple, hey?
