This modern industrial vibe. I spent a lot of time planning and measuring out my cuts on the big sheet of 8 by 4 birch plywood that I bought. I couldn't have done this project without the help of my sister and who let me use her workspace to cut the various pieces of plywood on my table saw Here. I am cutting mitered corners or, I guess edges for each of them to match up and create a box. Since I don't have a band clamp. I used packing tape actually and laid it out in long strips and then lined up my plywood boards. You see how the edges are cut at 45-degree angles, so, after applying the wood glue and brushing that on thoroughly, I could actually fold this up to create the box, which you'll see me doing here and then securing it around tightly with the tape.
I was sure to check that my boxes were square from all different angles and that my tape was holding it tightly together to let the glue dry overnight. After removing the tape, when the glue was fully dry, I used a pneumatic, nailer and Brad nails to connect each mitered corner together on top and the sides, then I sanded everything down with sixty grit sandpaper be sure to sand with the grain of the wood. I finished with a 220 grit sandpaper and then wiped the whole thing down with this tack. The cloth you'll see next, I applied stainable wood filler to the car rocks and holes in my wood boxes. Let that dry overnight and then sand off the excess with sandpaper. For the finish, I'm going to be using heirloom traditions, all in one chalk, paint in a Melfi to coat the inside of these boxes with two coats of paint. This paint has a primer and top coat built in the stain. I'm picking is from rust-oleum Vera Thane brand poly and stain and Kona, and I did need two coats of this product, but it recommends just doing one so between the coats. I use a 220 grit sandpaper to lightly sand and then applied again.
The finish was beautiful and durable. These are the facts of each end table which I painted on one side and stained on the other. So now I'm just going to nail them in on each end of the box time to get started on the legs here. I'm marking, where we're going to cut with these three inches wide hot rolled flat bar steel, my knowledgable sister graciously offered to help with welding the joints. We used the level and the square about a hundred times. It was fun to learn a little bit about how to weld after we were done. We use an angle grinder to smooth out the joints now, it's time to paint since I'm inside and couldn't use spray paint I'm instead of using this great product from deco art, multi-surface paint in the color black tie, which has great adhesion to slick surfaces like metal. It also dried to the satin finish. I wanted. Finally, it's time to put it all together, I lined up my metal legs with the wooden box and then I applied Loctite PL 375 construction adhesive to let it dry overnight.
