We made our cuts using a miter saw.  The box is built with 1×12.  If your saw won’t make a complete 12″ cut, just flip your board over and make the second cut after doing the first.

Here are the cuts you will make for the 1×12.

1x12 cuts

We use our Kreg Jig to make pocket holes on our three 33″ boards.  You can check out our favorite Kreg Jig model HERE on Amazon!

Kreg Jig for pocket holes

We made 3/4″ pocket holes and we will connect these boards to our longer boards using 1.25″ pocket hole screws.

You will line you box up like this.

Once you have your box built, you will make your cuts for the top and bottom.  These use 1×6 and 1×6 boards.  Here are the cuts you will make.

Cuts for top and bottom of table

Attach the base pieces using wood glue and nails.  Start by attaching the center board first, and then attach the side pieces the same way.

Nail Top of Table

Attach base of table with nails

Flip over the table and attach the center piece the same way as you did your base piece.  We then formed two lids by attaching two boards together using 3/4″ pocket holes and 1.25″ pocket hole screws.

How to plank a table top

Before attaching the lids we stained the entire piece.  We used Varathane stain in Ash.

While that was drying, we gave our casters a coat of black spray paint.

These are the casters we used for this table.

    If you don’t want to have wheels on the bottom – what would you recommend using instead. Thanks!

    Made a similar one to this. Thank you so much for the inspiration! I absolutely love this website. It’s my go-to place for projects around the house. For my table, I actually combined your idea with wood crates for the base.
