So first things first, here's what you need if your wife is going to make you build her a console table.
1'-6"x4' (1) 1/2" Plywood
1'x4' (1) 1/2" Plywood
2 table legs
1 1/2 inch threaded lug
2 1/2 inch threaded bolts
6 wood clamps
I first glued and clamped the 4" wood to the plywood on three sides. I let the wood glue dry for an hour on each piece.
Next I made the 4 corner pieces of the feet by using the chop saw to make 4" squares and using the router to make a trim profile shown below.
Next Whit and I attached the applique using wood glue and clamps.
Here are pictures of the final piece completed and painted.
For about $100, we consider it a worthwhile effort.
