Cut the Lumber
Using the measurements from step five and six as a guide, cut four 1x4 boards to create an apron between each leg. Tip: Always wear protective eyewear when sawing wood.
Place the first 1x4 between two of the table legs. Tip: If the board doesn't quite fit, use a rubber mallet to gently force it into place.
Attach a two-inch narrow hinge between each 1x4 board and table leg. Tip: It's always best to pre-drill holes before driving a screw into the wood. Repeat steps until all four 1x4 boards are secured into place.
