DIY Rustic Farmhouse Tables

As you can tell, I have a very stressed out helper who is always checking on me during my projects.
Step 1: Build the two ends.
You will drill pocket holes into the top and bottom 2x4s. Use plenty of wood glue and attach with 2 1/2″ pocket screws. Remember to double check your Kreg Jig settings based on the thickness of the material In this case, you are using 1 1/2″ thick material (2 x 4).
Note: Now, while I did do the project’s next steps in the order I am about to tell you, I would actually recommend switching steps 2 and 3 up, because it was a super tight fit. I really had a hard time! My thoughts after I squeezed it in the space between the sides and the connections were this:
I think it would be easier to build the bottom shelf first, with all pocket holes already drilled in the shelf section. Attach the shelf to the two sides you have already built and then add your 2 x 2 connection pieces.

Step 2: Connect the sides with the 2×2 connections.
Also using the pocket hole system and 2 1/2″ screws, drill the hole into the 2×2 carefully.

As you assemble the main frame, ensure everything is squaring up nicely.

Step 3: Build your bottom shelf.
Using the pocket hole system, adjust your settings for 3/4″ material and connect the two pieces of the bottom shelf together with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and wood glue. Prior to fitting the shelf into place, drill pocket holes around the edge to connect the shelf to the sides of the table. Then, fit into place and attach with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws and wood glue, flush to the top of the 2x4s so it is a smooth transition.
