I picked up an 18 inch wide board (and asked them to cut it in 18 inch pieces) some threaded rod (two 36" pieces cut in half), 4 carriage bolts, 4 cap nuts, 8 washers, 8 coarse thread hex nuts, 4 coupling nuts.
Once home, Luke drilled four holes two inches in from each corner.
I assembled the hardware first to make sure everything would work before putting the finishes on the wood and metal. Starting from the top, I put the carriage bolts through the board and tightened them each in place with a hex nut and a washer.
Cap nuts go on the end of the threaded rods acting as feet for the table.
Here it is all together.
Here you can see how it's raised from the ground.
A good coat of de-greaser and the metal responded to the blue in milliseconds!
Here's the before and after! Way cool huh?!
