1" doweling
Decorative detail molding

Ribbon
Saw

The Base

1. Cut 4 pieces of 2"x2" wood to 30 inch lengths.

2. Drill a 1 inch hole in the middle of all 4 pieces of 2" x 2" wood.

3. Create two 'X' shapes with your pieces of wood and line up your holes in the center.

4. With another piece of 2" x 2" wood secure the top left side of one 'X' to the top left side of the other. Similarly, secure another piece of 2" x 2" wood to the right hand side of either 'X'.

5. Run your dowel through the center holes connecting your structure together 6. Drill in a decorative knob to the end of your doweling to keep your 'X' shapes from slipping out either end.

7. Stand your 'X' pieces up with the brace pieces at the top.

8. Paint all your wood pieces and decorative detail molding in your desired color.

9. Allow to dry 10-12 hours

Pulling it together

12. Pull them tight and staple the ribbon to the other brace piece.

13. Add a decorative knob to the end of each piece of doweling.

14. Add no slip legs to the bottom of each 'X'.

15. Stack your suitcases and voila - a perfect side table or suitcase stand for the guestroom!
