I am beginning to learn more and more just how much I love industrial touches. This console was so exciting to build because I am slowly trying to fill my house with more and more of that industrial feel; and this build just made me one step closer. I'm loving how it turned out!

But it wouldn't be right unless I shared the plans with you guys so you can build it too! YAYY. This project was super easy and I built it in one day. So if you need an easy weekend DIY project for your home entryway you have come to the right place!
The brushless motor provides more runtime, more power and longer motor life and the 3-speed switch is great for switching between slow, medium and fast speeds. I foresee me using this tool a lot in the near future. On to Step 2!
Attach the six 2x2 stretchers (36") to the assembled sides using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue.
If you're wondering how I got my 2x2s to look so slick , let me confess now...it was nothing I did, I used select pine for this build. It's a little bit more expensive than regular pine but its worth the extra $ in my opinion. You can find it at your local Home Depot.
Attach the three 1x12s to the assembled console using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue.
The 1x12s should be flush with the top of the 2x2s for each row.
Attach the 1x3 top pieces to the console using a brad nailer and 2" brad nails,
Attach the four cross braces to the assembled console using a brad nailer and 2" brad nails.
Measure the 2x2 up against the console for best fit of the braces.
Paint casters (if needed) and attach Casters with screws and washers once dry.
I used Rustoleum Stops Rust spray paint in black to paint these casters I got from Northern Tool. I had these from a previous project but if you would rather have them pre-painted Home Depot sells some black Liberty Swivel Plate casters online.
This is my first project using casters; I have been seeing them on other blogger projects and have been wanting to use them and I finally got my chance!. Lets take another look at the finished product.
I stained the console in Minwax Early American and I think it was a fine choice.
if you enjoyed this project, don't forget to pin it for later!
Thanks for reading guys!
