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!
Be careful here. Base is somewhat unstable in this state.
I recommended staining these drawers after assembling.
After this step is the best time to paint your table.
Arrows shown are only for finishing nails to locate drawer front. Drawer fronts are actually secured with two or three 1-1/4" wood screws from with the drawer.
Note: Before installing the drawer fronts it is best to stain them.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
