Building the Table (Part 2)

So we made a little progress this week.  We bought the lumber to do the rest of the table build and began assembling the legs.  Turns out, I bought the wrong bolts to attach the legs to the table, so this required a special trip back to the store.  Luckily, David didn’t seem to mind so much.  I was originally going to make 3 sets of legs, but after mounted the two on the ends we felt this was sufficient.  After bracing the legs together, the table is very solid aside from some side-to-side motion, but the top will take care of that.  Now all that’s left is to cut and nail on the top pieces.  We bought 3 4×8 sheets of 1/2″ plywood for the top.  We’ll have to cut that down to 6′ lengths and one of them will need to be cut in half long-ways, so that’ll be fun.  Hoping to get it all wrapped up this weekend!
