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 four of the leg sets with your Kreg Jig set for 1-1/2" pocket holes and attach with 2-1/2" pocket hole screws. Use glue. One pocket hole per joint should be enough.
Once you build one, use it as a pattern for laying out the remaining three.
Attach leg sets together to create the sawhorse frame.
Use the circular saw with Kreg Rip Cut or a table saw to cut the shelving pieces. Attach on top of 2x2s with glue and 1-1/4" nails or screws.
From inside the desktop, attach to the 2x2 tops. Use 1-1/4" screws, at least 8 screws total.
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.
