DIY simple side table

It’s always fun to find creative projects that you can do by yourself. Small decorative items are usually what we create but there are also other things we can come up with, for example something practical and useful like a side table. And that’s a really simply project because it doesn’t require much time or effort.
Here’s what you’re going to need to make a side table just like the one in the pictures. You’ll need a hammer, a cross-cut hand saw, an engineered square or 90-degree triangle, a sanding block, a pencil, lumber ((3) 1” x 6” x 6’, (1) 1” x 4” x 6’, (1) 1” x 3” x 6’, (1) 1” x 2” x 6’) and a box of #16 x 1 1/4″ wire nails.
First begin by building the frame. Cut the lumber to the dimensions you want, in this case angle tool (engineered square or 90-degree triangle) and lightly sand the edges.
(6) — 1” x 2” x 11” corner supports (for lateral support, (4) — 1” x 6” x 18” top and bottom panel, (4) — 1” x 6″ x 20” side panel. Then assemble the side panels using nails directly into the center of the 1 x 2s. Next add the drawer into the space between the first and second plank. Now assemble the top and bottom panels and you’ll have a complete frame.
Assemble the drawer by cutting lumber to the following dimensions: (2) — 1” x 6“ x 15” front and back planks, (2) — 1” x 4” x 9.5” side planks (one on each side), (2) — 1” x 3” x 11” outermost side planks, (2) — 1” x 4” x 15” bottom end planks, (1) — 1” x 3” x 15” bottom middle plank. Slide the drawer into the frame and the table is done. You can also paint the table if you wish.{found on designsponge}
