#igbuilderschallenge Bailey Console Table

Plans use was the Bailey Console Table. 


This was build for the #igbuilderschallenge hosted by @desertwoodwrks and judged by @anawhitediy and @davidsheinkopf. 

I used two old queen sized bed frames for the legs and stretchers, welding them together with a Lincoln Weld Pak HD Flux core wire feed welder. With a little practice, anyone can do this easily! 

I used poplar hardwood instead of pine for durability. Stain is Minwax Jacobean, with 4 coats of Deft Clear Satin Spray Lacquer on top. 


Added a face frame around the doors, and made then inset flush mount drawers. The left drawer also has a false bottom, with hidden storage beneath the lift off tray. 

Recycled bed frames were used for the legs and stretchers (both front and back) and them painted with Rustoleum Black Satin Finish Spray Enamel,with the lacquer on top of that for protection. 

This challenge was so much fun to do, and it was a real blast seeing the creativity of everyone else involved! I can't wait for the next one.
