Rustic Side Table

Submitted by jandmhough on Sat, 06/14/2014 - 10:08

We've moved into a new house and I have lots of furniture I want to build. The side table was a pretty easy build, I did it in a couple hours in the afternoon. This is my first project with a drawer. The tricky part to it was putting the bottom in. I think i need to get a router so I can cut some grooves to slide it in. Trying to put brads into a 1/4 inch thick piece of plywood was really tricky. I didn't really use a plan, I just put it together based on the wood that I had available. I built it pretty much from scraps from other projects I've done.
