Build a cute curvy side table from a simple 2x10.
You can check out more building details at Hertoolbelt.
1 - 2"x10"x10'
2 - 18 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 9 1/4" (2x10)
The 18 1/2" pieces will be used for the table top, the rest of the 2x10 will be for the legs.
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Trim one side of each of the 18 1/2" pieces of 2x10 to remove the rounded edge, these edges will be joined together. Use a Kreg Jig, wood glue and 2 1/2" screws to join the 2 boards together. Draw an 18" circle, I used the screw and string method.
Use a bandsaw, scroll saw or jig saw to cut out the 4 legs and 18" circle. I used a bandsaw. Sand the legs and circle to remove ridges from the saw.
Get the 2 legs with the extra 3/4" on the butt end. Use the Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" material and join the 2 legs together with wood glue and 2 1/2" screws.
Drill pocket holes in the 4th leg and attach it to the center of the other 2 legs with wood glue and 2 1/2" screws.
To attach the legs to the table top, make a countersink hole in the 'crook' of the leg. Place the legs centered on the circle and use 2 1/2" screws to secure in place.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
