Tryde Console Table first go

Submitted by CarlosR on Tue, 05/10/2016 - 20:56

This was my first project, I made it longer and slightly taller to match size of the sofa. I also added lower shelf of 1x4 as seen on other users projects. Built using Kreg Jig to hide the screws - stained with ebony and satin poly. Used wood filler between 2x4 on top as well as between 1x4 on bottom shelf to seal the joints in case of spills. Would recommend using wood putty in the future rather than the filler as it cracked when it dries.

 

Tools used: Circular Saw, Kreg Jig, Screw Gun, Orbital Sander - recommend using Miter Saw if you have. I had a hard time squaring up the table mostly due to uneven cuts on the 4X4 using a circular saw. 

 

Added felt pads under the legs to prevent scratches to the wood flooring
