Your console base should now be complete and ready for the tabletop.
Your console should know look like this:
Add X braces to sides of the console using wood Glue
and 2" Brad Nails
. For this console my angle cuts were made at approx. 36 degrees. For the best fit, measure your wood pieces against the console, measure and then cut.
As seen here, I am putting the 2x2 up against the console; I then mark a line from the back and just make my cut from that. It makes its a lot easier to cut the X to the right fit.
Once I make the cut for my longer x brace piece and secure that down, I use the same technique for the smaller x pieces and fit them into place with wood Glue and 2" Brad Nails.
and DONE! My X console table is complete. I used Minwax Provincial
for my finish and it turned out great!.
The best part about this project is that it didn't take a whole lot of time and it was fairly cheap. Sounds like a win win to me.
I can't wait to see the X console table you create.I can't wait to see the X console table you create. Thanks for Reading Guys, XOXO Ashley
