« Part 1: Getting started, the plan and the wood. Part 2 of Making a table, on a balcony. series Part 3: Gluing the top, with some makeshift clamps »

I ended up having to go back and buy another length of the the planks and the wood for the legs.

No workbench, so we make do with what we have! 2 stools support the wood as I measure, mark and get ready to saw.

Rough idea of how it will look, I bought the cheapest of the cheap planks, and will be using a hand plane to knock down the edges a bit until they match up.

Another photo, because I can!

This was in day 1, my back was shouting at me like crazy! With no bench, much of the measuring and work is done bending over.

2 x saw horses should be on your next build list.

Again I should show you my pallet Timber saw horses I needed these for helping me make garage shelves for my son.
