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!

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!

Dimensions:

Materials List:
7- 2x2s @ 6ft
1- 1x12 @ 6ft
1 - 1x12 @ 6ft
1- 1x3 @ 6ft
Cut List:
4 - 2x2s @ 35"
6 - 2x2s @ 36"
3 - 1x12s @ 36"
2 - 1x3s @ 14.25"
1- 1x3s @ 39"
4 - 2x2s - cut as needed

Note: The console pictured was built 3.5" thinner than the plans to fit a particular space.

Step 1: 
Attach the 2x2 stretchers (11.25") to the 2x2s (35") 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. Repeat step for the other side of the cart.
Attach the 2x4 brace (17") to the 4x4s (16") 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. There should be a 2" spacing from the 2x4 brace and the floor. Repeat step for the other side of the coffee table base.
The other exciting part about building this cart was using this Ryobi Impact driver for the first time! I've been using the Ryobi Hammer Drill for a few months now and absolutely love it, and this impact driver definitely didn't disappoint me. Made drilling a breeze and for $99 its not a bad deal.

I foresee me using this tool a lot in the near future. On to Step 2!

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.

Step 3: 

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.

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.
