NOTE: If you are working with a 1x10 board that is exactly 4 feet long (48"), shorten the boards marked with a * by 1/4" so you can fit the two cuts on the 48" long board. The tabletop boards would then work out to 23-3/4".
Place the tabletop boards on top.
Line up so there is gaps in between, you can use the hinges to help space out the gaps. Make sure there is a gap in between the 1x10 boards.
Once satisfied with the gap placement, carefully remove the 1x10 boards.
Use a pencil to trace the placement of the 1x3 boards, as you will need to remove and attach with glue.
Remove the 1x3 boards, apply glue and replace.
IMPORTANT: Make sure there is a 3/4" overhang on the ends of the 1x3s (where legs will go in next step) on both sides. Use a scrap piece of wood to help you.
Nail down with 1-1/4" brad nails.
IMPORTANT: Also attach the 1x3 boards to the top with three 1-1/4" screws per 1x3 - as this is the main attachment point for the entire tabletop.
I then sanded the entire project with 120 grit sandpaper. I smoothed out all the outside edges.
