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.

Note: This complete project (all the pages together in one handy pdf file,ad free) can be purchased online and downloaded immediately to your computer for only $5.  Grab here.
