Build your very own wood patterned table top!
(1) 4x8' sheet of 3/4" PureBond Plywood (cut to size 40"x80" at HomeDepot)
(3) 8' long 1x3s (we chose Red Oak, but Pine would be fine too) for the frame
(4) 1/2" thick sheets of 2'x4' plywood (we used various species)
A mix of Minwax water based express color stains
Rip cut the 1/2" plywood into 1 1/2" strips
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
