Building A Wood Table Base,Observation Bee Hive Plans,boat planter woodworking plans - PDF 2016

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.
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.
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.


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).
Start the process by easing all of the hard edges of the top and table base with 220-grit sandpaper for a smooth feel.
No Problem!If you don’t have a table saw, you can still create the table and benches.
