Cut List

Cut List:

General Instructions

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!

love it!

Love the dramatic scale of your chevron pattern. It seems so obvious to stain the wood before you install the chevron pattern...but I did not think of it. Thanks for your post, it saved me so much taping for my chevron table project.

How

I'm curious to know what you did, because I want to build a project just like this one. How did you get the whole table top to lay flat and even, without sanding the finished top, and how did you keep glue from seeping on to the top part of the table.
