This kids' craft table has a bucket in the center to store art supplies and two secret cubbies underneath for books or small toys. Using store-bought turned legs, this farmhouse-style table is the perfect little workspace for your wee ones to create their masterpieces or ace that pop quiz!

Directions

Follow the steps below to complete this project.

1

Attach the Long Aprons

Drill 3/4" pocket holes facing up and out into the long aprons. Space pocket holes approximately 6"-8" apart. Attach the long aprons to the turned legs with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue. The aprons should be 3/4" inset from the outside of the legs. The upward-facing pocket holes in long aprons will be to attach the table top in later steps.

2

Assemble the Carcass

Drill 3/4" pocket holes into the 1x3 boards as shown. Notice that the two middle 1x3 boards have pocket holes drilled facing both up and down. The downward-facing pocket holes will be to attach the secret cubby shelf in the next step. Use 1-1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue.

3

Attach the Secret Shelves

Drill 3/4" pocket holes into the 3/4" plywood shelves as shown and attach it to the long aprons with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue. Attach the 1x3 boards to the shelf with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws as well. *Tip: use a scrap 1x3 piece to keep the shelf level while you're attaching it.

4

Attach the Top

Center the top over the base and attach it by screwing 1-1/4" pocket hole screws from the aprons to the table top. Allow for a 1" overhang on all four corners. Measure your bucket and use a jigsaw to cut the hole accordingly so that you can drop the bucket in place to store art supplies.

5

Add Trim

Measure and miter cut the ends of the 1x2 trim at 45ยบ angle. Use wood glue and 1-1/4" brad nails to attach it to the perimeter of the table top.
