    1. Using a large lid, trace a curve on the corner of each of the 24 pieces
    2. Cut each curve with a jigsaw and fine blade
    3. Sand each piece with a sander or sandpaper
    4. Paint the 6"x 10" and 2" x 6" pieces with Maxx Gloss in black
    *Make sure you paint 4 sets facing each direction
    5. Paint the 4" x 8" pieces in China White

    *Ikea tables come in black, but they are not glossy which is the effect I wanted
    8. Glue the painted wood pieces together in sets
    9. With E-6000, glue them to the corners of each side of the table and let dry
