I'm going to make this one that I patterned after a Pottery Barn table. I built this table over the course of several months, just spending an afternoon here or a Saturday there working on it, and I think the majority of the time I spent on this was actually sanding to get a nice smooth surface. When I was done, I saw a table that my wife and I both really liked on the Pottery Barn website and it was about $ 2,500 and I thought there's no way. I'm going to do that. So I went ahead and got Sketch up and hopped in and started designing some measurements and layout for this table and trying to interpret it the best I can, based on what I saw on the Pottery Barn website and their table is beautiful.
It's actually made out of reclaimed pine, and so I went and made this one out of Douglas fir, which is similar to pine. It's a softer wood Douglas fir has a little bit tighter grain. One of the nice things about pine or Douglas fir is that you can purchase them from any big box hardware store like Lowe's or Home Depot, and the total cost for this, including all of the hardware that I used, was under $ 300. Let's take a look at how we got this project started, I'm going to break the explanation of this table down into two parts: first, we'll look at the base and how that's constructed and afterward we'll look at the top of the table so for the base.
Really we just have three types of lumber here we have four by sixes that make up the majority of the base of the table. We also have a four by four running the length of it and then up top, we've got two by fours. Those are holding the top together to hold the whole piece nice and strong, then, as we move up toward the top. Basically, all we've got here are four two by twelve pieces of lumber, one next to another and I'll show how to fit those nice and tight.
Then we've got two by fours, acting as the end caps for the table and then finally, some two by twos going underneath running the length to create the skirt for the table. Now I've placed the plans and a cut list for this table in its entirety. The first thing I'm going to do is use. My miter saw to make all of the cuts on the cut list, starting with the four by six pieces and then I'll move on to the four by four and the two by fours.
Once I had all the pieces cut, I went ahead and laid them out on the floor in just the same shape that they would be once the legs were assembled. I then took a speed square and marked my two-inch corners that I was going to cut off the ends of the top and the bottom piece of each foot.
