One of the reasons why I started building my own furniture was because I couldn’t afford to buy the pieces I was drooling over in the windows of stores (cue, “how much is that doggy in the window”, but sub “doggy” for “dresser”). That being said, I was pretty stoked when I was asked to join in on a knockoff furniture challenge with a slew of amazingly talented bloggers. Even cooler, our budget was less than $100. So, I made a replica of a $400 nightstand from reclaimed pallet wood and $40 in lumber. Even cooler, I partnered up with my amazing family at DAP Products to turn this vision into a budget-friendly reality!
Have you wanted to incorporate metal into your woodworking builds but aren’t sure where to start? Always wanted to make a table base but don’t have a welder? Reading this in the voice of an infomercial voiceover actor? Well, I have good news for you (I hope you at least read that one in the infomercial voice)! You can totally create a metal table base without a welder, and I partnered with my awesome friends at Bernzomatic to show you how!
