I made this project with all 2X4's and 2.5 in pocket holes. This took 8 2X4's. To add the industrial look, I added some metal casters on the bottom. I haven't finished it 100%, but will add some metal corner brackets on it as well. This project was super easy to make. Took me about 6 hours to cut and build (2 tables). And another 3-4 hours to sand, stain and finish.
$55 per table ( because of the cost of wheels, screws, and corner brackets). The wood only cost $20-$25 per table.
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
1 coat of Minwax Weathered oak. Let that dry. Then 1 light coat of minwax special walnut. After that dried, I used minwax finishing wax instead of Poly. I like the rough/natural look that it gave in the end.
