First and foremost cut the number as per the steps given below:-

  • 4*$ for the base of the table
  • 2 94" long supports ( square both the ends)

  • 2 29-1/2" top braces
  • 2 18" middle uprights ( connects the top and bottoms braces)
  • 2*8*10s for the tabletop, 5 6-1/2"*112"( rip boards to 6-1/2", then square both ends to 112")
  • 2*4*8', 4 1/2"* 2*8'( rip board into 1/2" slices ')
  • 3/4"*4"8' MDF for the tabletop base one 30-1/2"*8'(rip sheet to 30-1/2")

The middle uprights and the long supports are mandatorily meant to be square. 


 Take one of the 22-2/4" upright on a flat surface. Then tie and place the bottom upright in a position that the forms the base. Make two holes through the upright into the bottom brace. This drilling process must be fine in such a way that pieces are square. Then take wood glue and 6" lead screw and attach the bottom brace to the upright. Then flip the L and the other upright in such a way to the other side of the bottom that it forms U shape. Then repeat this process to attach the top brace to the upright forming a rectangle. Solid Wood Furniture Online
