Rustic end table inspired by a very popular furniture store. This project is super simple to build and is held together with pocket hole screws and nuts and bolts. Easy weekend project.


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Drill Holes with Spade Bit

Cut boards according to cut list and drill holes in the 8- 1X3’s @ 26”and the 6-1X3’s @ 24”. Use the 3/8” spade bit for this step.


Drill Pocket Holes

Drill pocket holes in the 6- 1X3 @ 24”. This is what the shelf boards will attach to. You will only need two pocket holes per board to support the shelf board sections.


Sand and Stain

Completely sand your boards and paint or stain. This is very difficult to do once the table is assembled.


Make Shelf Units

Lay 2- 1X2 @ 17.5” boards across 7- 1X3 @ 18” boards and screw together with 1 ¼” wood screws. Make three of these.


Build Leg Units

Place 3-1X3 @ 24” between 2- 1X3 @ 26” Secure with a bolt, washer, and hex nut. The holes drilled with the spade bit will be the placement of the boards. tighten nuts to ensure stability of the table. Make two leg units.


Attach Shelves to Leg Units

Take the shelf sections you have already assembled and attach to the leg units with pocket hole screws. The shelf units should hang over 1” on each side.
