We built this small table for extra bathroom storage, but it can be made to go almost anywhere.
By Chris HillMore in Bathroom
For a rustic look, we've used cedar to build our table, but you can use any lumber you prefer. For the legs, replace the 4x4 dimensional cedar with 3x3 oak or poplar. The finished dimensions of the table are 22 3/4" tall x 33" x 26" deep.
This project uses pocket-hole joinery in a couple of steps. If you're not familiar with it, take a look at the basics.
(1) 4x4 x 8' piece of cedar or redwood
(4) 2x2 x 36" oak squares for clamping cauls
(2) 1x6 x 8' piece of cedar or redwood
(1) 1x3 x 8' piece of cedar or redwood
1-1/4-inch pocket-hole screws
wood stain, polyurethane, paintbrushes and painter's tape
table saw, miter saw and jig saw
drill/driver with a pocket-hole jig and drill bit
right-angle pocket-hole clamp, face clamp and bar clamps
Use the diagram as a cutting guide for the wood.
