How to build a Ice Bucket Stand with Table Top
Start by assembling the stand slightly larger than the bucket. I used pocket holes and 2-1/2″ pocket screws to assemble.
Cut 4 pieces of PVC about 8″ for the base of the table. Make sure it will fit inside the base of the buck with the cross and elbows attached.
After applying stain and poly to the tabletop, attach the caps by drilling holes in them and screwing to the top with 1-1/4″ wood screws. Locate the caps in conjunction with the PVC and fittings shown above.
Cut the legs to the table such that the height of the table is about 42″. We painted the table base with a metallic spray paint.
Now add ice and drinks and you’re done!
