Building a corner table
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the bottom shelf. As you can notice in the diagram, you need to mark the cut lines on a piece of 3/4″ hardwood plywood. Use a circular saw to make the cuts and smooth the edges with fine-grit sandpaper.
Continue the project by attaching the 2×2 legs to the bottom shelf. Drill pocket holes through the bottom shelf and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the legs. Plumb the legs with a spirit level and make sure the corners are right-angled. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
The next step of the indoor woodworking project is to attach the aprons to the wooden table. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to build the aprons out of 1×4 lumber. Cut the ends of the side aprons at the right angle and smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Drill pocket holes at both ends of the aprons, align them to the legs and secure them into place using 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints.
Build the tabletop out of 3/4″ plywood and smooth the edges with fine-grit sandpaper. Take accurate measurements and mark the cut lines on the sheet, before making the cuts with a circular saw.
Lay the tabletop on a level surface and center the corner table to it. Make sure the overhangs are even along both sides. Drill pocket holes through the legs and through the aprons. Afterwards, insert 1 1/4″ screws into the tabletop through the aprons. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the stand from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the corner table in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
