Introduction, the plans and cutting list
This project, as with other Buildeazy projects, is designed with the home handyman or DIYer in mind.
Joints that might require the expertise of a more seasoned woodworker are non-existent. Instead, all joints are secured with bolts and/or screws and maybe a bit of glue. Because of this, the project only requires the most basic of tools to undertake a professional job, but does not lack in strength.
The table is 600mm (24″) wide, 1200mm (48″) long, and is 400mm (16″) high.
