About This Project


After posting about my 20 Second Tidy Up table I built on my blog, a local reader commissioned me to build one for her too! I used a Kreg jig for the top and sides, as well as the 2x2 frame supports. I also added some L-brackets to the sides for added stability. This thing is solid! Since Lowe's doesn't carry fixed-wheel 1 5/8" casters I used an epoxy putty on them so they only roll in one direction. It keeps the trundle from bumping into the sides and being hard to open. Love the table, and so does Christine!

This is great, once again. Just curious... how much did you charge to build it? I am embarking on a furniture making to help pay the bills adventure right now. Working on my second piece. :)

I've only built a couple of things for sale, and came up with a basic pricing method that I'm happy with right now. I start with cost of all materials, then charge $10/hr for how long it takes me to build, sand & finish. Cost was $80, and it took 7 hours from start to dried poly.
