30-minute build-

I needed a small side table, and this one was quick to put together. I used:

8- 3/4" EMT sections cut to the desired length
4- 90 degree connectors
4- threaded pipe inserts
4- rubber pipe feet
4- screws
1- High-density polyethylene commercial cutting board, 15" x 20" (Sam's club)

The cutting board made for a nice, durable, waterproof tabletop. I cut the pipes, assembled the frame, and turned it upside down on the bottom of the tabletop to mark the location for drilling attachment holes. The threaded pipe inserts made it easy to attach the top using the four screws. Maybe I will paint or shrink-wrap the pipes, but for my purpose, this was perfect.
