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

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.

This was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I loved the build, the table was beautiful, but the video was spectacular. In it's simplicity, the music, the way it was edited. I loved it! It encapsulates what I experience sometimes when I'm out in my garage turned shop building. Just creating, just being. There's almost something spiritual about it for me. I do my best thinking out there ;-) I also got really hung up on your amazing router table and miter saw table.... did you build those as well and are you planning on sharing those plans with us? ;-) I have been scouring the web looking for a good router table design, still haven't found one that I really liked until now.

Excellent work! Please, keep those videos coming, very great!!!!!

Thanks Patrick and ignore the repeated question I thought the first one didn't go through.

Patrick that was an amazing video and the table looks fantastic. I like others who have commented am really interested in your router table, is that your own plan or are you able to share where you got the plan from.

Your little one is gorgeous too by the way, what a cutie.

Beautiful video and beautiful table Patrick! So inspiring watching stuff like this. I love the tool you used to make those...are they biscuit joints? Anyway, where did you get it from? And the idea of making shop furniture sounds like the greatest. I would also love plans for a router table!
