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!

Instructions

Step 1

Build your tabletop first. Set aside on a flat level surface to let dry.

Step 2

Next, build your end aprons/leg pieces.

Step 3

And then simply connect with side aprons.

Step 4

Add center supports.

Step 5

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.

For many reasons... I thoroughly enjoyed watching all the steps and tools you used Patrick! And the video was beautifully shot and edited:-) Loved the shallow depth of field close ups!

Having already built a table almost exactly like this one, I know just how much love goes into it. This video beautifully captured that passion between woodworker and wood.

Amazing Patrick!

This is a such a great video, it is done so well. I loved watching the table come together, but then I got lost in the music! Music by Patrick Hosey?! You truly are the jack of all trades.

The table turned out beautiful, and as I was watching your video, I kept thinking, "There's that router table and miter saw cart that I want sooo bad!"

Nice job. I really enjoyed the video and transitions, and the music was so calming....now I have to go build something!

Thanks for all the nice words. This was a very fun project. Thanks to Ana and Gabe for making it happen. Here are a couple things to google after watching this video.

- How to joint boards for glue ups.
- How to glue up large table tops.
- Beadlock joinery
- TableTop Fasteners and Hardware and what it does

There are so many ways to do things, just find a way that you like

Maybe we should do some more shop furniture next time.

I've never seen those fasteners from Rockler before, I'll have to check those out. And the joinery too, I've never seen that type of jig...so much I don't know about, but it's fun to learn!

I "Second" the nomination for more shop furniture! *ahem* router table.

There's a link on the materials list. It looks like just bold black text but it's a link.
