How do I get around without a table saw?
You’ll need a table saw for this project. Just look for one that is at least 10″ tall.
We also have a pair available that has a nice flat bottom for use with a table clamp. You won’t have to worry about making a cut with the table saw because the clamp will pull the lumber out of the way. The clamp’s height should be 6″ or less.
If you’re able to get one on eBay for less than $40 we highly recommend the K&R Sawzall. The Sawzall is a great product for both your money and your lumberyard hours.

What material shall I use?
The lumber for this project comes in a variety of lengths, some less than 2 feet. We recommend using either 2×4’s or 1/2×2’s. These should be placed on the bottom of the saw.
What size do I need for the table?
In terms of size, we recommend using a 30″ x 40″ room. This will allow you enough room to slide in a table lamp or a pair of slippers, and enough space to make your projects look professional with a table lamp or slippers.
You can use a large 1/2 or 2×4 with this project at 2 feet, depending on what style lamp you want to use.
What type of glue should I use?
A few brands we recommend are Xikar 3M Varnish Polyurethane, Xikar Acrylic Filler and Xikar Glue

How do I hang my table and lamp at the end?
You can use a hanging board which would be a 2″x4″ x 2″ or 3″ tall by putting a piece of 1/2×3″ wood (you should plan on using 2 or more of these as well, so the extra 2′ should be sufficient) across the bottom of the wood and screwing a piece of 4 to the bottom of the board. Then simply screw the top piece to the bottom. This will allow the table to lay over itself when hanging, and then the 3″ of light will not be visible through the wall. We
