2x4 Accent Table

Submitted by Deitrich on Sun, 02/01/2015 - 06:35

I used the ideas of many and added my own as well, with the bottom shelf and 30 degree edge cuts on legs and bottom edge of table top. I constructed this in two separate parts, frame and inserts. I stained the the gray and brown parts separately then finished assembly and clear coated. I used nine 2x4x8' and one 1x8x6'. Table top is 60" x 22". I had to use one piece of 2x6 and rip to 4" wide. This filled the 1/2" gap I was left with on the gray part of table top.

for the top coat I used Rust-Oleum Ultimate Polyurethane in Semi-Gloss, three coats.

I really like the contrast with the colors. You did an outstanding job of making this piece a one of a kind. Very, very nice.

Did you happen to have a support for the bottom shelf?  This is exactly what I'm wanting for my entry way! Awesome job and love the colors!
