  • Now, cut two 22.5 ̎ pieces out of these lastly separated 6 ̎ pieces and when you get the entire piece, it’s time to glue them up.
  • Firstly, glue four pieces up in order a rectangular shape, as you can see in the video and add a divider where you can make a drawer inside the table.
  • After that, add edge banding on the top surface of your table, once you have made it by attaching the parts with glue!
  • To stick edge banding, set the bending, press it down with the pressure of iron and wipe out the excess parts with a stencil.
  • Attach the edge bandings on the rest parts of plywood that you have in your hand as these will be utilized to make the drawer later.
  • Make one separate part of that rectangle base to use as the back panel of your table and set them with glue.
  • Make sure that you are leaving the bottom of that drawer section totally empty as this will be filled with a drawer later!
  • However, after setting the one side of the table, paint it out entirely with a subtle shade and cover a few places with masking tape that you want to protect from the paint.
  • Then, take four pieces of half inch plywood, join them up with the nail and set a base from a plywood piece to give it the shape of a drawer’s base.
  • Now, insert it into the empty space of your table and be sure whether it could fit at the place or not!
  • After setting it in, place the top surface of your drawer and stick those parts together with some nails.

  • Now it’s time to make the legs of your table and for that, buy four fancy table legs from any hardware store.
  • Don’t forget to coat them with the same paint coat before attaching them below the table.
  • Finally, apply the clear coat of poly on your table and let all the parts dry completely before going on the final stage.
  • Then, set those brackets on the four corners of the bottom part of your table and give a final coat of paint on some place if you feel it needs, especially after taking out the masking tape!
