One last project before we close out 2020 delivered. Our friends at Elevate Insurance were in need of a conference table to match the other pieces we created for them. Using 2X6 and 1X6 premium pine, we created this 8′ X 35″ V-legged Table.
We ripped 13 2X6 X8’s down to 5 inches, taking the rounded edges off the table, then ran them through the planer to clean up the main surfaces. Using our Handy Dandy Kreg Jig, we then added a series of pocket holes. Putting Gorilla Wood Glue in between the boards, we then pocket screwed the boards together making sure we reversed the grains on each board to avoid warping. Then clamped them to keep them tight while the glue dried. We let them sit overnight in a nice 70 degrees.
Meanwhile, I assembled the V-Legs and lined them up on the support boards.
Once everything was dry we took a special touch and hand planed the excess glue off and did several passes with various grits of sandpaper for a nice smooth finish.
Delivered Just before New Year, the Crew at Elevate was ecstatic!

Big project in the books! This was a fun and exciting Build with Merideth’s creative designs and my tools. This project turned out beautifully.
We started with the L shaped desks, to make the frames, we used pine 2X4s featuring a two-tire shelf on one side. For the Desktops, we used edge-glued tabletops that we purchased from Menards and cut them to fit. Assembly consists of hidden pocket screws and Straight brackets for the desktop connection.
Merideth then designed a two-tier receptionist desk, using 2X4s and fine covered plywood for the “Walls” Covered with prefab tongue and groove shiplap on the outside. the desktops and customer standing edges made from Edge glued boards. Mer then put a coat of Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover Primer on and let cure for a day.
Mer then painted them with Rust-Oleum Countertop Coating in a light Ash color to match the customer’s office paint tone.
Delivery was made just in time for the grand opening party. Next on the docket for Elevate Insurance? Conference room table!

My Beautiful Bride, Merideth, and I celebrate 18 years of marriage this year, June 22nd to be exact (almost 25 together).
For our anniversary I made this LOVE Knick-Knack shelf to accompany her Cow painting and display her Willow Tree Figurines.
The Build was quite easy. Here is the cut list using 1X4s:
- 6 @ 10″
- 2 @ 10.5″ with the ends cut parallel at 22.5 degrees
- 1 @ 16.5″
- 1 @ 12″
- 1 @ 6″
Put together with 1 5/8″ 6-Lobe Drive Steel Pro Trim Wood Screws filled the wholes with Elmer’s wood putty and then sanded it a little ruff for a more rustic look.
Stained with Verithane Premium wood stain in a Golden Oak color. it really pops against our light gray walls.
Happy Anniversary My Love!!!
