Steps to build the side table

  1. Cut table sides to size and router decorative groove
  2. Rout out same groove on top
  3. Assemble sides and top. Fill screw holes
  4. Draw out shape for legs and cut out for each leg.
  5. Sand all four legs together to ensure they are exactly the same
  6. Drill recess holes for cross slats
  7. Drill hole for bolts. (if I can figure out how to do it with dowels then we will show that rather)
  8. Sand and varnish (it’s easier to varnish them all separate and then assemble)
  9. Attach cross slats
  10. Attach legs to top
