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!
Build two of the leg frames with the Kreg Jig set on the 1-1/2" setting. Place the pocket holes on the outsides - this is a stronger joint and will be hidden by the floor and desktop when finished. Use glue and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.
Attach the two longer 2x2s at the back, again placing pocket holes on top and on underside of footrest. Use glue and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.
Place desktop on top and attach from inside with 2" wood screws.
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.
