WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Old wood or planks to form the tray (about an inch thick, 22 inches long and 14 inches wide)

Four 8-inch hairpin legs

Sandpaper

Liquid nails (for metal and wood) Drill (optional)

PROCEDURE

  1. Sand the wood until smooth and varnish if needed.

  2. Mark the corners underneath the wood where you want the hairpin legs, about an inch lengthwise and 1.5 inches crosswise, from the edges. Just provide enough for leg space underneath.

  3. Glue the legs securely using the liquid nails, or drill in place.

NOTE: You can order hairpin legs online, or have a local welder create them from scrap metal. Inspired by the DIY project on The Merry Thought.
