Building the Table Frame

I went to home depot and picked out some wood that would be good enough for the inside framing of the table. I tried to get something light weight and sturdy. The main reasons for the frame is to keep the table sturdy and also make it so the walls of the table will be square, flush, and have something to screw into. I measured out all the pieces in google sketchup and then had someone at home depot cut the pieces to size.

I don’t think it’s entirely necessary for cross beam support since the walls of the frame will provide the majority of the support. The frame is more for keeping the walls together and squaring up the sides. There’s probably better ways of doing this, but it should work for the my purposes.
