Hi Everyone!!!  Today is THE day!!!

I've been looking forward to this day for weeks, and it's finally here!

Yep, it's Do-It-HERself Workshop Day!  At all Home Depot stores accross the country, at 6:30 PM tonight, you can join in on the fun, building my most favorite Adirondack Chair ever!

I've flown 1500 miles to host in person the Bitter Lake (North Seattle) Home Depot Do-It-HERself Workshop, and truly wish I could have made it to every single store.


Since that's not possible, I hope you will share with me via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook your photos and comments during the workshop.

Just use the hashtag #DIHWorkshop so I can find you. I'm at @knockoffwood and the Home Depot is @homedepot .

I'd love to put together a recap including all your photos and comments after the workshop, so thanks for taking a second to send me photos and comments tonight!


And if you can't make the workshop :( don't worry, of course we got you covered with the free plans!

General Instructions

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!


Step 1

First, build the basic table frame. You can attach boards in different ways, the easiest is just using a countersink bit to drill holes and attach with screws and glue. Alternatively (Kreg jig users) you can use 3/4" pocket holes and 1 1/4" pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Attach legs to outside of frame as shown in diagram.

Step 3

Mark the tabletop boards and place on top of the tabletop. Predrill holes and attach - overhangs are shown in next diagram ...

Step 4

Enjoy your side table!!!

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

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.
