Using solid oak dimensioned lumber bought pre-cut at Leows.

Two hours start to "finish."

24" oak 1x6 - 3ea @5.96 = $17.88
24" oak 1x4 - 3 ea @$3.97 = $11.99
21" ash parson table legs - 4 ea.
@$8.14 = $32.56

Matetrial Total = $62.43
(at least $250 retail for same solid oak endtable so I already paid for the Kreg jig)

7 cuts:
four to size the legs (20")
two for the side skirts (20")
one for the end skirts (11 7/8")

Drill and join table top
round the corners, route the edge.

Drill and join the legs and skirts.

Finish sanding.

Matte finish poly

Drill skirts and attach top ... done

Thank you, yeah I was shocked how fast it went. Oh, wait, to clarify – This morning, I drew it out, went to Rockler (oak $2 a board foot!) and did the cut list.

Then in the afternoon I drilled it and put it together with the fine thread screws from Tony’s post.

Assembly = about 2 hours. Design and cut list = another 2 hours. Trip to Rockler and stopping for Hawaiian food along the way, priceless. ;)

That is GREAT! I am delighted to have inspired you.

Wow, that was fast! You built that today, after seeing Tony's post this morning!?!? Very cool! Great job, btw.

Tony, thank you. I greatly appreciate the encouragement; I had been scared to jump into oak. You are right, the fine threaded screws worked great, very easy actually.

Here is the table I made today (not stained yet). I “borrowed” your design (thank you!), but needed it taller than yours so I added the lower cross pieces.

Just make sure you use the "fine" threaded screws for oak and do not over tighten or you will strip them. I set a pretty loose torque setting on my drill; just enough to assure the screw seats tight. Otherwise the self tapping screws work great without pre-drilling. I would also use a bead of wood glue on the edge joins of the top. The top edge joints are plenty strong but a very small gap has appeared on one of them. Its' not real noticable unless you are looking for it.

Elegant craftsman design. I am going to get of the Web and go make one of these today.

Any problem with the self-taping screws in the oak? (I generally struggle with oak, even with diligent pre-drilling)

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
