I then started to cut my frame for the tabletop. I used miter joints here. It is best to rough cut, to length and then sneak up on the cut. As it is hard to measure and get it right, the first time I started with one side and when that was correct, i clamped it into place and made my way around the board. Once all the sides were cut, I glued and nailed into place. I then came back and put it up all the nail holes this wood putty. I then sanded and painted the table legs. I undercoated and applied two coats of paint. I used juleps white on white low Sheen for this.
I drew a line at the center of the square part of the leg and the center of the stretcher. Then I glued and screwed them into place just lining the lines off once the legs are dried. I had a couple of small gaps in between the wood pieces, which needs to be filled a little trick, for you run a bead of glue down the joint and get some sawdust from around your miter saw and rub the sawdust in with the glue it'll fill The joint and blend in no one will ever notice. I then trimmed the tabletop to its final length. I did this with a circular saw and using a door board or a circular saw cutting jig to make the cut the door board. Jig is a great Jeep for the workshop and makes cutting straight lines. I sanded everything flat and up to 220 grit.
It was then time for me to tape off and paint the areas I took my time to ensure the tape was perfect This will help the colors not bleeding. When painting I always paint the lighter color first and then move to the darker one. The white error is jewel, off-white and white, and the black is jewel luck, spirit of flat black paint. Once the white error is dry, I can remove the tape and retype for the black arrow with the area's painted. It was time to remove the tape and see the big reveal and then taped up the frame and painted that coats and save you washing your brushes and rollers a million times it's a tabletop drying. I could drill the holes in the table legs which would be used to join the top to the bottom.
