I built this box frame console table with lumber using just a few tools. It cost me about $25 and about 2 hours to build. I love the wood top contrasted with the boxy base. This is the perfect low cost but beautiful piece that goes with just about any decor style.

- 4 - 2x2 @ 8 feet long (I used furring strips)
- 1 - 1x12 @ 4 feet long
- 2-1/2" self tapping trim screws (16 needed)
- 1-5/8" self tapping trim screws or 1-1/4" brad nails for attaching top
- wood glue
- wood filler
- 120 grit sanding block
- paint or stain for finishing
- 4 - 2x2 @ 29-1/4" - legs
- 4 - 2x2 @ 45" - side frame
- 4 - 2x2 @ 8-1/4" - or 3" less than width of 1x12 - end frame
- 1 - 1x12 @ 48" - top
Sand the wood pieces with the 120 grit sanding block until smooth.
Connect the two frames with the short 2x2 pieces, attaching with glue and 2-1/2" screw.
Set the assembled frame on a level surface. Adjust any joints if needed for square, so the frame sits level and flat.
Let glue dry.
TIP: If going for a two tone finish, paint or stain the base as desired before attaching the top. Do not finish the top edges, you want raw wood to bond with the 1x12 top to be attach in the next steps.
