Perfect Trestle Table/Desk

Submitted by c-e-fogus on Thu, 07/18/2013 - 11:16

My husband asked me to make a small and inexpensive table for our new TV. I decided to make a desk so it would be able to be used later when we move the TV. Very easy plans. Easy assembly. Great beginner project. I used 1X6 for the top instead of 2X6. It was less expensive and seems to work just fine. I also threw together a small TV stand so the DVD player can go under the TV and not clutter up the table. It's 3 1X4's @ 20 inches. And I made the sides by ripping the leftover 1X4 in half the same width as the top. I spent $30 in wood and have some scraps left over for another project.
