The table nightlight. I started this project by making the shelves first, and I made the amount of some reclaimed barn wood that I had. I figured out the width of the shelf that I wanted and then I had to find that width within the pieces. A lot of sections of this wood were rotten or cracked. So I had to work around that. I gave everything a quick sanding to knock off the dirt and expose some of the saw marks. There were quite a few places on this where bugs had gotten in or just rotted over time, so I used a wire brush on my drill to clean them off. I wanted it pretty smooth to the touch you just have to make sure not to go too deep using that wire brush.
I used some oil finish, which is a combination of oil and polyurethane mixed together. It gives a really great finish if you do a couple of coats, so I put two coats of that on the top and the front of both of these pieces of wood. While that dried, I moved on to the metalwork for this. I used one-inch square tubing for the frame. I use the speed square to draw the angles that I wanted and then I cut them with a cut-off saw that I just recently got. I used the first two legs as guides to cut the second two legs.
You really have to take your time when going through two pieces of metal like this at the same time, because it will bind up very quickly. The legs I cut had a 45-degree miter on the top, so I had to make a piece to go between two legs to connect them. I cut a miter on one end, mark the depth of the shelves that I've made and cut the miter on the opposite end. I cleaned up all the cut edges from all the different pieces, using a flat disc on my angle. Grinder these welding magnets help hold the pieces in place while you weld them together but are aware, they don't automatically give you a perfect 90-degree angle.
You still have to line your pieces up correctly, I welded one side flipped it over and welded the other, and then I made a duplicate frame for the other side of the shelf. I ground down all these again with the flat disc as to not grind off too much and got them smooth so that you really couldn't see the miters anymore. I had to cut a few more pieces to connect the leg assemblies and reinforce them for the bottom shelf.
