When I moved into my apartment, I did a half DIY job on my kitchen table, which is also our dining table. I painted the top and attached the legs, but it wasn’t really a building project.

Bring It Together Step 1 Place a couple of sanded scrap 2″x4″s on the floor , and lay your slats on them with the best face down. (The 2″x4″s will protect the finished parts from being scratched by the floor.) Align the ends of the slats and butt them against one another. Step 2 Center the table assembly on the slats and secure the table base to the slats (Photo 3) with 2″ pocket-hole screws through the aprons and stretchers. Step 3 With the top secured, add felt pads to the bottom of each table leg. Good to Know Can’t find non-pressure-treated 4″x4″s in your area? Use 2″x4″s instead. For each leg, cut two boards 31″ long, and laminate them together with glue and clamps. When the glue has cured, rip the 3-1/2″-wide laminated blank to 3″ in width, taking 1/4″ of the width off each edge. Trim the laminated blank to 28-1/2″ long, and a 3″ square leg is born!

Fit the boards together by interlocking the tongue-and-groove sides. They don’t need to be completely even since the ends will be cut off flush later. To ensure that the boards are tightly compressed during the next steps, lay 2″ strips of wood across the top and screw them onto the table surface (In this project, screws were driven into the table top because the table was going to be distressed. Do not use this method if a smooth, clean finish is desired).
