Free DIY Furniture Plans: How to Build a Verti Dining Table

Free DIY Furniture Plans: How to Build a Verti Dining Table

Oh I just love an interesting dining table! Don't you? I think tables are without doubt one of the easiest builds and typically come in at a far lower cost than many other 'big' builds. They also come together pretty quickly and that instant gratification thing kicks in right of the bat! The leg frames can be painted using a metallic paint to mimic metal . It may be more economical to rip 2x4s in half to create the 2x2s with square edges, or to simply substitute for 2x3's which are generally found in the 'stud' section of your lumber supply and are usually priced accordingly (read... cheap). Can't wait to see what you do with this! Xx... Rayan... Read More
