I built this dining table and matching benches all using two by fours in flat Stockstill on modern builds. The first step was to cut all of my two by fours to length, and I set up a stop block with the miter saw to do that now. If you plan on building this project for yourself, make sure and check out the written article link in the description of this video it'll have a cut list, along with all of the materials and supplies. You'll need to build it yourself now two by fours are great, but you want to make sure and remove the rounded corners to make them look more presentable and to do that, I used my new Ryobi electric hand planer.
Now it takes off about an eighth of an inch per pass, and so all I had to do was to passes on each edge to remove that corner completely. This was the first time I tried this method and I was really surprised and impressed with how well it worked. The edges were all really consistent and really square. Now, of course, you can always use the traditional method of ripping down about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch on the table, saw on each edge and that will leave you with a square corner as well, either way once you have all of your two-by-fours prepared, you Want to glue up all of your blanks, I glued up the tabletop in three sections, so that everything would be a bit more manageable and I also had blanks made up for each of the benches once the glue dried overnight.
I ran them through the planer so that I had a really smooth edge and I feel like I should mention you: don't have to have a planer like this. You can always use the electric hand plane as I did earlier, or a belt sander. It just takes a little bit more elbow grease whenever you're gluing up a big tabletop like this, you want to do it. On a flat surface. I found a flat piece of the concrete pad. Then I set up a platform to glue everything up on. I used call boards to sandwich my tabletop pieces flat.
Then I used plenty of clamps to squeeze out as much glue as possible and, of course, because these are two by fours and I don't have a joiner. There were gaps here and there, which I filled with wood filler, make sure you get the one that drives natural.
