HOW TO BUILD A SIMPLE SPACING JIG
AND A
SIMPLE MEASURING JIG

The next step is to create a couple of very simple woodworking jigs.  With these jigs, and your pocket hole jig, it will be easier to assemble these Kreg table plans.


The first is a spacing jig, which will save you time AND make the apron offsets more accurate. Find a piece of scrap wood that is 3/8” thick. It can be up to 7” wide, and should be 15” or so long. You will put this under each apron as you are attaching the aprons to your sofa table legs.



The second is a measuring jig, which will save you time AND make the height of your shelf consistent on all 4 table legs. Simply cut a piece of wood (i.e. a 2x2) 4 3/4” long. Rather than measure this same distance 8 times, use this to mark the 8 locations where the shelf supports will be attached to the legs of these free sofa table plans.



HOW TO ASSEMBLE
THE BASE OF THESE KREG TABLE PLANS

Page 1 showed you how to join the pieces the table top, as well as the pieces for the shelf.  This page will you how to build a table base and attach the table top.


Lay one of your legs on a flat surface, and clamp in place. Lay your spacing jig next to it, and then a short apron on top of the spacing jig. Align the apron with the top of the leg, and drive your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws.

Repeat for the other side.

Make the second side to match the first.



The next step is to attach the short shelf support to that side. The bottom of the shelf support will be 4 3/4” from the bottom of your table leg. Use your measuring jig to mark that location on each of your legs.

Clamp in place and drive the 2 1/2" pocket hole screws on both sides.

Repeat for your other side piece.



The next step in these free sofa table plans is to attach the long shelf supports to the sides. Lay one long shelf support on a flat surface. Align one of the side pieces so that the shelf support is 4 3/4” from the bottom of the leg. Again, use your 4 3/4” measuring jig to get the right location! Clamp in place, and drive the 2 1/2" pocket hole screws.

Lay the other long shelf support on a flat surface, and repeat the process.



Repeat the process to attach your second side to the long shelf supports.



Now add the other 2 short shelf supports between the long shelf supports. We placed ours 11” from each end. Clamp in place and drive the 2 1/2" pocket hole screws.



Place your shelf on the top of the shelf supports. You may have to do some sanding on the corner cutouts of the shelf to get it to fit around the legs.

Once you get it to fit, clamp it into place, and drive the WOOD SCREWS from the shelf supports into the shelf.



Attaching the long aprons is next. Lay your spacing jig on a flat surface with one of your long aprons on top of it. Align the side of your table base to the apron, clamp in place and drive the 1 1/4" pocket hole screws from the apron to the leg.

Repeat to attach the apron to the other side of your table base.



Lay the other long apron on the flat surface with the spacing jig underneath it. Flip your table base over, and align the apron with the top of the leg. Clamp in place and drive the 1 1/4" pocket hole screws.

Repeat to attach the apron to the other side of your table base.

Your table base is now complete.



HOW TO ATTACH THE TOP
OF THESE KREG TABLE PLANS

Lay your table top on a flat surface. Using a pencil, mark where the corners of your table base will sit on the table top.

For this plan, each corner will be 3 9/16” from the end, and 1 3/16” from the side.

Align your table base with the marks, and clamp into place. Then drive the 1 1/4" pocket hole screws on all 4 sides.
