A sofa table. A lot of people have built that bench over the year and if you didn't see any want to check it out, I'll, have a link in the description for this project. I'm going to get started by turning this 4x4 post into four legs I'll get started by squaring up the 4x4 post on the joined and then I'll use my table saw to rip the post into four legs. The chop saw to cut the legs to length. I'm calling the part that will connect the legs together, an apron and to make the apron I'm using a 2x4 from the home store that happens to have a really nice straight grain.
First, I'll mill the two by fours to remove the round over and then I'll join the board's together. While the glue is drying on the apron I'll use another part of the same 2x4 to make a cross brace and let the glue set up. Just about for three hours, and now I'm gonna fit these and I'll run them through the sander. Along with this piece, which is going to be the centerpiece, so these pieces here will get cut in half will be attached to the legs, and then this piece will be the centerpiece which will eventually hold the top I'll use.
A mortise and tenon joint to join the aprons to the legs and to cut the mortise I'll use a mortise cutting machine. I've got the machine set up with a 3/8 mortising chisel and I'm cutting a half inch mortise. So I'll hold the leg up tight against the fence cut most of the mortise, then flip the leg and finish the mortise.
