How to build a wood Christmas tree
The first step of the project is to make the sides for the tray. Mark the cut lines on the 1×4 slats and get the job done with a saw. Smooth the edges with attention. Make 45 bevel cuts at both ends of the slats, in order to create neat joints between the components.
The base plates are a little larger in size than the theoretic 10″x10″, so that is why the interior of the frame will have to be slightly larger.
Align the frame of the tray with attention, making sure the corners are right-angled. Leave no gaps between the components and align the edges with attention. Use 1 1/4″ brad nails to lock the components together.
Build the bottom from 3/4″ plywood. Drill pocket holes along the edges, as shown in the diagram.
Fit the bottom to the frame and insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock it into place tightly. Make sure you adjust the height at which you place the bottom to suit your needs.
Apply glue to the bottom and spread it evenly. Attach the lego base plate and place some heavy items to enhance the bond.
Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-220 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.
Top Tip: Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, to enhance the look of the project.
