DIY bar table

I finished a bar table for our kitchen today. I found a design for a table made of scaffolding wood. This wood is probably the cheapest that one can get but it is sturdy and it looks nice (at least that's what I think). The local DIY shop where the wood was bought also cut it at the desired length. Building it was easy. Just build the table top B, by attaching the 62mm stave lath (D) to the table top and attach it to the table leg A with the 30mm width stave (G). The planks of leg (A) were connected with the stave (E). Some of the 195mm wood was slightly curved but the staves straightened it nicely.
The bill of material was:

  • 6 pc scaffolding wood 2500 x 195 x 30mm
  • 2 pc scaffolding wood 2500 x 62 x 30mm
  • 2 pc scaffolding wood 2500 x 30 x 30mm
  • 1box (100pc) clipboard screws.
The parts list  for the 195mm width wood was:
  • 8 pc scaffolding wood 1070 x 195 x 30mm
  • 4 pc scaffolding wood 780 x 195 x 30mm
