A New Tutorial....... Bucket Table

 Hi Prim Girls,

We enjoy making wood pieces so much, but was not easy to be working in the garage with the low temps that we had this winter. Thanks God  that Spring is around the corner... Love it!  It means more furniture pieces for my home. We have better temps this week, perfect to start a new wood project and this is my new piece.  I am very pleased with it and decide to share with you a new tutorial..... a Bucket Table.  I see that some prim gals are using my tutorials to make their own pieces and that is awesome for me. I am not a carpenter but I enjoy so much creating this tutorial for you. Try it!

You'll need the following materials:
  • 2 pieces of 1" x 12" x 6' wood board
  • wood panel of 1/4"
  • wood nails
  • wood glue
  • sander
  • table or gig saw
  • Paints ( I choose black and tan)
  • Stain
Using a piece of 1x12, cut 2 pieces of 27" long.  In one side of the piece, measure 2" from the edges to inside and mark each points. Measure 5" from the bottom of the piece to the top and draw a semi circle. Connect that semi circle with the points from the edges. Make the same in the next piece. Your bench legs will look like this. 
Take another 1x12 board to make the top and the shelf pieces of the table. Measure a piece of 32" from the edge and cut your first piece (this will be the table top) and your shelf will be 28 inches long.
We are ready to make the table. Take your table legs and measured 11 inches since the edge, mark and placed the bottom shelf.  Put the piece between legs and secure it with glue and nails. Now, put the table top using the piece of 32 inches. Remember, use glue and nail to secure each piece  to give strength to the bench.  Look how it looks with all pieces together.
To give support to the  new piece attached a piece of wood to the back. Take the 1/4" panel and cut a piece of 29 1/2 " x 16 1/2 " to cover the back of your table. Your back will look like this.
Your piece is now finished....
Round the edges and make sure all sanding has been completed prior to painting. Give the base color and then apply the color you want. 
In this piece I used tan over black. The table top will be stain only.

To give a distressed look, use the sander and remove paint in the specific areas to create a worn look. Then apply stain. Now your piece looks worn and old. Primitive perfect!
Love this new piece! I named it Bucket  Table but you can used it to display your jugs and crocks if you want.

Well, I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much I enjoyed making this piece.

Bye, Bye and see you soon..... Evelyn
