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!

Assemble Table While the top is drying, measure the thickest portion. Add 1/16” to this measurement and mark a horizontal line with a framing square across the tops of the table legs. This line marks the gutter structure mounting depth. Legs will protrude 1/16” above the plane of the tabletop. Ask a helper to hold the leg tight to the inside corner of the gutter structure with the mark at the top of the gutter. Drive at least two wood screws through the inside face of the gutter into the sides of the leg. Attach all four legs and set the top on the base with equal overhang on all sides. Carefully trace the leg tops on the bottom side of the planks and then flip it over onto a work surface. Drill a 1/2” hole with each square mark near the line but not touching it. Using a jigsaw, carefully cut out each square. Because leg tops will nest snuggly in these squares, be sure cuts are slightly undersized. Flip the top back over and attempt to set it on the base. Using a flat wood file and chisel, remove small amounts of material as needed. Once the top nestles down on the gutter structure without excess force, run a small bead of wood glue on the top edges of the gutter, reposition the top and shoot 15-gauge finish nails through the inside edge of the gutter into the bottom of the tabletop. Fill in small gaps between the leg top and table planks with wood filler or small wood shims.
