Step one: cut the cedar planks at 60 inches long. I screwed each of them into a 2x4.
If you look at the picture above, you will see a small piece of cardboard: this is the template that I used to drill and screw. This is the only place on the table where the screws are visible, so I wanted them to be aligned in the center and all at the same distance from the edge.
NOTE : this is the top view of the table.
