About This Project

Thank you for the idea for the rustic x end table. My wife is extremely happy with her new end table. Happy wife = happy life!!! I constructed the end table of 2x4 douglas fir rough sawn material I salvaged from a project where we removed a trellis from the house. My son helped me remove all of the nails and we let the wood dry out from the rain. I cut the 2x4 to the lengths described in the directions (I had to modify the x braces in length), sanded the wood and applied natural finish stain. We also added 3 coats of polyurethane to the table top to give it a nice finish and hopefully help with wear and tear over the years.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$50
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Douglas Fir
Finish Used: 
We used a natural stain for the first coat. On the actual table top we used 3 coats polyurethane. I was told today by a cabinet maker that I should have used laquer instead because it holds up better and drys quicker speeding up the process.

What an incredible

What an incredible transformation!
