I think this cost about $70 in lumber to construct. FIrst i made the cedar countertop then built it from the top down. The side covering is a birch veneer. Pretty simple. Used clamps to glue the counter top onto the console. But a word of warning about wood glue: use it sparingly because glue stains are hard to get out! Along with some screws & an orbital sander & voila! Spent about 2 weekends last summer building it. Nice because it doesn't take up a lot of space in our modest house.
