A dining room table can get everything you need for this project at your local hardware, store. The first thing you're going to do is set up our Craig if you've never used one. It comes with instructions to get you set up, you're going to set it up for boards that are one and a half inches thick on the two two by four boards that are 19 inches long. We're gonna put two pocket holes that will attach to the leg on each hinge. Now we're going to mark the center point of the boards at nine and a half inches and then one on each side, seven and one-quarter inches from the center mark.
These marks will, let us know where the cracks of the tabletop will be to make sure we don't put a screw in the area where there is no board to hold it. Next, we will put three pocket holes between each line and on the two outer areas. We will put one hole so that we do not interfere with the pocket holes attach these to the legs. Next, on the 37 inch two by fours we're going to put two pocket holes on each in and then a total of four pocket holes down the side. Once we have our pocket holes drilled, it's time to put our apron together using our two-inch pocket hole screws when you're laying out your apron make sure your pocket holes are facing the right way.
Once we have the apron together, we're gonna lay out our tabletop when you get it laid out the way you'd, like flip the board's upside down and stain the insides of the boards. This ensures that the cracks in the tabletop are not going to show the raw wood from the top make sure you don't have any stain dripping down the sides as a leave marks on the tabletop. Now that's the inside of our boards. Our stain just make sure the woods face down so that we can put the apron on top or, if you're me, you clap twice, and now you screw it down.
When doing this, you want to make sure your two inch screws are tight, but don't over tighten them as they can go through the top. Now that we have everything put together, we're gonna sand and stain it. Have you been saving it and you're gonna want to give it some time to dry, then throw on some coats of polyurethane and finish it off by using a light sanding pad to smooth it out now, you've got a place to pay your bills, or possibly
