Making the Legs

  1. From 2x2 pine, cut four vertical leg pieces (A), each 13 inches long, and four horizontal leg pieces (B), each 13 inches long.
  2. Cut two side pieces (C) from 3/4-inch-thick plywood, each measuring 13 by 16-3/4 inches.
  3. To assemble one leg, first attach two vertical leg pieces (A) to two horizontal leg pieces (B) as shown in Figure 1. Then attach the leg assembly to one side piece (C). Glue and screw them together using 2-inch-long screws spaced about 6 inches apart. Note that the side piece (C) extends 3/4 inch beyond the edge of one horizontal leg piece (B).
  4. Repeat Step 3 to assemble the second leg.
