  • 2 metal corner brackets

  1. Cut top planks off of the barrel: With the carpenter’s saw, carefully cut the first two planks off the barrel. The plank should be measured so it fits the plywood top.
  2. Drill holes in the top: Measure and mark four holes, evenly spaced, on the underside of the plywood top. Using a drill and 5/8 inch bit, drill four holes for dowel placement.
  3. Attach top and barrel body: Place dowel into top holes and place on top of barrel body. Use wood screws to secure the barrel and top together.
