Set Up Spray Area and Sprayer

Using a spray shelter and a drop cloth, set up your painting station.

Use a liner in your spray cut, stir and strain your stain and then put it into the cup.

Spray the Boards

Spray all sides of your boards with 1 or 2 coats of stain as desired, letting it dry in between coats. After each coat of stain, use a chip brush to back brush your stain IF the directions indicate to do this.

Cut Metal

Cut the metal angle iron into (4) lengths that are approximately 14.5” long using a metal cut off blade. You want these lengths to be about the same length as the width of (2) 1" x 8" boards next to each other.

Attach Boards to Each Other

Use a Kreg Jig to attach (2) 1" x 8" boards to each other. You should end up with (4) board sections approximately 14.5" w by 3' l.

Place the Boards in a Square

Place the boards on the ground in a square and place a 2" x 2" board on the inside of each corner.

Use a drill and screws to attach the boards to the 2" x 2" boards. This will create a very stable and strong connection point on all corners of your square.

*Note this is helpful to have an extra set of hands to do this part.

Create Legs and Enjoy!

Attach the end caps to the pipe to a flange to create legs. Do this for all (4) sets of pipe. Screw these into the wood square approximately 17.5" from the bottom corner of the square to the bottom of the flange. But please measure and place them in the exact right spot for your project.
