I wanted to make a table with a stone top. I went to a local tile and flooring store and found a 16" by 24" "Antique Parma Travertine Paver." It cost less than $6. I also had some scrap wood from repairing our fence - the wood had a lot of character and I was happy to use it. This can be made with three 8' 2x2 boards - which will also be pretty cheap.

The base of this project is made form 2x2 boards, connected by 2 1/2" Kreg Jig pocket hole screws. I put the pocket holes on the underside of the boards on the bottom part of this project, so that they are not visible.

The cut list is very easy. The legs are 22" long. There two dimensions for the side pieces - 20" and 12"

There are four 20" boards and eight 12" boards - very easy.

See the attached PDF file for more details on dimensions.

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

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.
