Step 1: Fashion the Legs

Start by cutting four 28" legs from a piece of 4" x 4" post. Next, cut a 3/4" wide by 1 1/2" deep notch 2" from the top of each leg. Using a circular saw with the blade set to 1 1/2", cut each side of the 3/4" notch and then use additional cross cuts and a chisel to remove the remaining wood. Cut four 3" x 3" x 1" triangular gussets from a spare piece of wood and, aligning the gusset with the bottom of the notch, attach one to each leg with construction adhesive and 15 ga. finish nails.
