Shopping List:

6 – 2×4 @ 8 feet long
1 – 4×4 @ 6 feet long

Cut List:

8 – 2×4 @ 47 1/2″
2 – 2×4 @ 28″ (recommend cutting to fit after step 1)
2 – 2×4 @ 18″
2 – 2×4 @ 42 1/2″

Step 1:

Start by building the table top boards. Clamp each joint and attach with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws. Make sure your ends are flush. If they are not, you will need to cut ends flush with a circular saw before attaching breadboard ends.

Step 2:

measure width of tabletop and cut breadboard ends. Attach breadboard ends to the tabletop as shown above, with ends flush.

Set the tabletop aside.

Step 3:

Now let’s move on to the legs.

Take a scrap piece of 1/2″ plywood and use it as a spacer to elevate your apron when attaching to the legs to get the 1/2″ inset. Remember to face the 1 1/2″ pocket holes in the aprons facing upward for attaching the tabletop in last step.

Build two end aprons/leg sets.

Step 4:

Then attach the two leg sets together to form the tabletop base with the side aprons. Remember to keep the pocket holes for attaching the tabletop later on facing upward.

Step 5:

Position the base on the underside of the top, keeping overhangs even all the way around. Attach with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and glue.


Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
