Starting materials consisted of S4 red oak boards, table legs, and Jeff’s finish of choice (red Mahogany stain + satin polyurethane). As for the tools, Jeff used a Kreg pocket hole jig, a corded drill, plenty of clamps, and many fasteners. Total cost was around $200.
The steps are fairly straightforward and easy to follow:
Starting off with “S4” wood boards means that all you need to break them down is a circular saw or table saw; no planing or jointing should be necessary. Although a less economical option, it is also possible to purchase all boards pre-cut to size so that no sawing is necessary.
