Step 1

wire table
Lay 30"×24" wire deck flat with the 30" raised crossbars facing down (when turned over they will face up). Attach 18"×24" wire deck to each end of the larger wire deck with cable ties. Leave the cable ties loosely secured.

Step 2

Attach the other two 18"×24" wire decks to the center of the larger wire deck with cable ties. Make sure the ties go around all three pieces. Leave the ties fairly loose.

Step 3

Join each of the two middle 18"×24" wire deck pieces to the outer 18"×24" wire deck pieces with cable ties, to form a "V" as shown.

Step 4

Adjust all pieces so they line up neatly. Tighten the ties and trim the ends (to about 1½"), leaving them long enough to tuck behind the first bar. Flip the whole piece over.

Step 5

Cut 28"×30" acrylic sheet into two 11½"×28 1/8" pieces. Have the acrylic sheet cut at Lowe's, or cut it yourself with a straightedge and scoring knife. Sand one side of the acrylic sheet with a sanding sponge or sanding block wrapped in sandpaper to make it cloudy. Sand in one direction for an even finish. Set the acrylic sheets on the wire deck with the sanded side facing down. They should sit between the 30" raised crossbars.
