Turn rough construction lumber into top-notch material to make this affordable table and bench set. Building large-scale furniture often requires an oversize investment in tools and materials, but not with this classic dining set. For the remaining table base parts, cut the long aprons B, short aprons C, corner braces D, and stretchers E to width and length.
Drill holes for the pocket-hole screws in the long and short aprons and the stretchers (Drawing 2, Project Diagram).
Begin building the base assembly by attaching the long and short aprons to the legs using glue and 2" pocket-hole screws (Drawing 3, Project Diagram). Glue the corner braces into each corner of the table; reinforce by driving 2" pocket-hole screws through the blocks into the aprons as shown -- no pocket holes are required.
Complete the table base assembly by adding the stretchers between the long aprons using glue and pocket-hole screws. Apply a pre-stain conditioner, following the manufacturer's instructions, to prevent the stain from turning blotchy in the soft wood; then apply a stain of your choice to the slats using a foam brush. When the stain is dry, brush on three coats of a semigloss polyurethane to the table base and slats. Place a couple of sanded scrap 2"x4"s on the floor , and lay your slats on them with the best face down. Center the table assembly on the slats and secure the table base to the slats (Photo 3) with 2" pocket-hole screws through the aprons and stretchers.
For the benches, use the same procedure to prep the materials as you did with the table: Cut the part 1" longer than called for, trim to width, and then cut to final length.
Place one of the seat slats on the bench so the edge of the slat is aligned with the ¼" gap between the legs (Photo 4) and centered end to end on the bench. Reach-In Closets -A well-designed reach-in closet can effectively help you double your current space.
Carolina CUSTOM Closets reach-in closets include many of the same features found in a walk-in closets, including double and single hanging, adjustable shelves, and drawers as needed. Whether you are a homeowner, remodeler, and local home builder, Carolina Custom Closerts provides the service and attention to detail you deserve. UPDATE: the patio that appears in this post under the fire pit was re-done last summer, when we realized we no longer liked the rocks and needed a bigger area. Do the same with your outer circle, so that as you work you can have a good visual of your space.
It’s also a good idea here to place the rim of the firepit atop the layer, to make sure it sits correctly before you stack the whole thing. As an added bonus for you neat freaks, the Lowe’s firepit even comes with a cover for when it rains! Alessandra Macaluso is author of “The Real-Deal Bridal Bible”, available on Amazon and Kindle.

It should match your space and the type of work you do and should be at a comfortable height for you and your work piece. Using a table saw, trim the leg blanks to final width and thickness; using a miter saw, trim the parts to final length (Cutting List, Cutting Diagram). Reinforce the corner joint by driving a ¼" lag screw through the brace into the leg.
Start the process by easing all of the hard edges of the top and table base with 220-grit sandpaper for a smooth feel. Allow each coat to dry; lightly sand between coats with 320-grit sandpaper to remove rough spots. Prepare the material and cut the legs A and the braces B to size (Cutting List, Cutting Diagram).
Drill two pocket-holes for securing the seats along the top edge of the braces; sand the legs and braces (Drawing 2) to 200 grit. Position the parts with the bottoms flush, separating the legs with the ¼" spacer (Photo 2).
The material will stabilize, and the boards will be less likely to twist when you cut the individual parts from the larger pieces. No Problem!If you don’t have a table saw, you can still create the table and benches.
We decided our firepit should be about 4 feet in diameter, with an additional 3 foot past that to allow some space for seating.
Grab your firepit that you bought and follow the instructions to put it together, but leave off the legs.
Once your layers are stacked, you can drop your rim and steel fire bowl onto the top layer, and add the grate that comes with it and the screen. Once It’s browned to your liking, spread some Nutella on your graham cracker and sandwich that sucker in between. I skipped all the c-section parts in the baby books, because I wouldn’t be needing one of those!
Center the brace on top of the legs with the bottoms flush, and use the angles cut at the top of the legs to mark the angle at the top of the brace. With a few modifications to the plans -- and a lot more sanding -- you’ll be ready to go. And while we were already on our outdoor DIY kick, we decided it was time to build a firepit.
All you need is a space that is far enough away from your home and does not have any low-hanging branches or trees that can catch fire. As I mentioned in my DIY post about building the veggie garden, one of the best tools you can use to quickly get the grass up is a pick axe. This will keep the base of your stones secure as you build, and will help you level your base easily as you go. First, take the screen and put it in the center so that you have a visual to work off of (see pic below). She has contributed to Scary Mommy, Uptown Magazine, Charlotte Magazine, and many other publications, and was featured in the New York Times “Life and Style” section.


Also, when purchasing wall block, remember that some block has an interlocking lip on the bottom for use in retaining walls, not stacked block projects.Step 1Dig a 45-inch-by-45-inch round hole 6 inches deep. Errors will be corrected where discovered, and Lowe's reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted. You want to also think about the diameter of how big your pit will be, and also leave some space to pull some chairs up to enjoy it.
For a firepit that will be 4 ft in diameter, it took sixteen stones for each layer.  Use your level as you go. Not only does the Nutella spread and melt better than the Hershey’s, but it’s absolutely delicious!
Her original screenplay, “Polar Suburbia”, placed as a semi-finalist in the 2009 Moondance Film Festival. One note, though – we went 4 levels high, but you can go only 3 high and it will still look very nice.
Now, what you are going to do is hold the free end of the string all the way out, and with a can of spray paint (or some other form of marking,) walk around full circle while marking your space. This is important, because if you base layer is not level, then your firepit is going to look like a leaning tower of screw-up by the time you get to the top layer. Use the remaining base to level and fill in the first course.Step 4Rotate the pattern for each course so that you stagger the course underneath.
It’s kind of like that drunken game you used to play with your forehead on the bat while circling around it, before attempting to run in a straight line. You'll probably spend a good deal of time at the bench so it's important to be comfortable there.
But his research paid off, and it finally happened – the Firepit for All Neat Freaks was born!
Align the short 2 x 8 top rails flush with the short sides of the substrate and use 3-inch wood screws to secure the rails to the substrate.Step 4Align the long 2 x 8 top rails with the long sides of the substrate.
The ends of the long top rails should be flush with the outside face of each short top rail.
Check out the finished product below, then scroll down for the DIY instructions. And don’t miss the delicious smores recipe at the end! Drive 3-inch wood screws through the long rails into the ends of the rail stretchers.Step 6Construct four leg assemblies. Screw the leg pieces together with 3-inch wood screws.Step 7Set the legs inside the corners where the long and short top rails meet. Secure the short rails to the legs with 3-inch wood screws.Step 10Stand the work bench right side up.
