I Built a Table!

Sometimes, if I can't find exactly what I want, then I create it. I've been wanting a table to not only photograph my still life images on, but also something that provided storage. Through a search on Pinterest, I found some ideas, but none exactly as I wanted it. So, I designed this unit.

It's 24 inches deep, 36 inches tall and wide.
It's made up of 5/8x2 inch slats with 2x3's for the legs.
I used a small board under each shelf to create a ledge to attach the shelf boards.
I had all the boards precut at my hardware store.

  • My first step was to attach the legs and the ledges together, making sure everything was level.
  • Next, I laid out the boards on the top to make sure the depth and spacing would be right with the number of boards I was using.
  • I attached the outer boards on the top and then on each shelf
  • Then I attached the remainder of the boards, spacing them out first to make sure they were spread evenly.
  • I put a board on the front the top two shelves just for decorative purposes.
  • I painted it all white.

I'm using the small space underneath to stack tiles that I use as surfaces for still life images.

Thanks for reading!
