Step One

Cut the pieces for the base posts, the legs, and the feet. With the pocket hole jig set for 1-1/2″ material, drill pocket holes in one end of each leg piece. Use a sander and coarse sandpaper to sand a rounded edge on the opposite side at the opposite end of the pocket holes.

Secure the 1×4 feet on the bottom of eight of the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails. These will be the lower legs. Secure the lower legs to the posts locating them 3/4″ up from the bottom of the posts using glue and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws.

Secure the upper legs to the posts using glue and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws. The back face of the legs will be flush with the top face of the posts.

Step Four

Cut the pieces for the top and the top trim. The trim will be secured to the edges of the top using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails. One edge of the trim pieces will be flush with the top face of the table top.

Secure the top to the bases using countersunk 2″ screws. Do not use glue! This will make it easier to move the table as needed!
