the original plan was for the legs to be maple wood, but I figured that it would be WAY too heavy so I kicked the maple legs to the curb haha..

so I had to brainstorm on what I wanted to do with the legs and came up with screwing 2 2x4s together. I did a counter sink in the screw holes n threw in wood glue n dowels to keep the look clean, then lined everything up.  I also stained the legs before putting everything together..

after lining n screwing everything together (make sure u level along the way), I put on 2 more 2x4 slabs on the top, counter sink, glue, n dowel.  saw off the dowel tips, sand, then stain..

I don't have that kind of wood to make the rustic, I love it though.
