I'm making this mid-century modern accent table now, in my case, I'm temporarily using it as a TV stand in one of the bedrooms. If you're interested in making this exact table, all the measurements will be down in the video description since the top, and the bottom is the largest surface of this build. I started by cutting the biggest pieces first and whatever I had leftover. That's what I use for the additional parts and with the remaining pieces I was able to cut out the back and also the two sides so now to cut the sides, I would say if you're using limited tools and you're using a circular, saw to cut this Clamp the two together, so you only cut once the side should sit perfectly at the top and the back piece it between the two sides.
We need to cut one more piece and that's to support the drawer track and I'm going to use the side as a guide once that's cut. It should fit perfectly with the sides to build a draw box, I'll use, half an inch, sanded plywood and to help keep the cost down I'm using a wooden track. So I'm using some select pine from my scrap bin and, if you missed it just remember all these measurements will be down in the video description to construct the drawers, I'm using a rabbet joint and I'm using my router to do it. But you can also use a handsaw but only cut the rabbit in the face and the back of the drawer.
Not the sides now cut out the bottom for the drawer learning. From our past experience, I think it's better to send the pieces down now before. It's a symbol because not only will it make your life a lot easier, but you also get a better quality of sanding in my case, I'm only using glue. So I put a good amount of glue right in the joints right where I'm going to put the box together, insert the bottom and then put the face on next. I'm using a strap clamp and you can also use regular clamps. If that's, what you have and also check to make sure the squaring is good and then onto the next step.
So prepping this thing for paint I'm using 220 sand people and ice and everything decide the top to bottom because I'm not thinking on which parts going to be exposed just give it a good sin. The legs looked like there was already standing when I got them, but they had a rough feel to it. So I just sand them again, anyways to make it even smoother, and these can be purchased from Amazon, which I have links down in the bottom. So now everything has been sanded and it's ready for a coat of finish.
This is all the pieces that we need to build this entire piece. I temporarily attached the legs to a piece of wood, so I can easily move it once. I'm done painting it and get it out of my way. I taped off the hardware, so I didn't get any paint on them and somehow I still managed to get a little bit of paint on them, but you can always remove the paint, not a big deal. Now to paint the leg, I'm using a black semi-gloss spray paint from Rust-ileum, and you can pick that up at your local hardware store.
