We finally made something that we’ve been waiting to make for a long time…and it was so easy! A wood slice table with hairpin legs!
Originally we were going to use a raw wood slice then sand and finish the wood before adding the legs. However, living in an apartment doesn’t make it easy to sand and stain…oh we’ve done it before, but it’s just never fun to do in a small space. We recently found a wood slice cutting board and it just clicked to use that instead of a raw wood slice…cutting out all the extra tedious work!
It was perfect timing because we recently got a Worx Switchdriver Cordless Drill & Driver and have been wanting to try it out!! This was the perfect first DIY!
The Switchdriver holds multiple bit pairings, just twist the head and go from drilling to driving in seconds without having to fumble swap anything out!
3 Hair Pin Legs with Screws
Wood Slice Cutting Board
Prep Wood: Place the cutting board upside down on top of a blanket or a soft surface to prevent any scratching. Peel off rubber bumpers.
Mark Legs: Position hairpin legs in place and mark with a pencil. Tip: Keep the legs close to the edge for the best stability.
Pre Drill: Pre drill holes for the screws.
*Rotate the dual chuck on the Switchdriver
Screw: Screw the legs onto the wood slice. Flip to make sure it is sturdy. Ta-da!
Reasons we love our Switchdriver already:
Rotating dual chucks makes it easy to switch between bits.
Electronic torque control prevents the stripping of screws.
Comes with 2 powerful MaxLithium batteries – means we wont have to wait for a dead battery to charge…AND the batteries are compatible with other Worx tools!!!
From a cutting board to a table! A very impressive looking DIY that literally took less than 10 minutes!
This post actually took longer to write than it did to make the whole project! Using the Switchdriver made the process quick and seamless!
Teddy loves it too!
