Trim four 15" legs and eight 18" rails from the L angles. Use painter's tape to mark where you will cut. If cutting brackets with a hacksaw, clamp them to a table to secure while cutting. After cutting, file the ends smooth.
When cutting L angles, be sure to make your cut through the ovals. Wear protective gloves and goggles for safety.
Connect one 15" leg to two 18" rails with bolts, lock washers, and nuts, creating one table corner. Do not tighten nuts securely until all pieces are assembled. Continue connecting the legs and rails to create a cube.
Cut an 18½"×18½" piece of plywood. Sand and finish with polycrylic, polyurethane, or paint. Place face down, then flip metal cube onto top of plywood and attach it to the cube with a screw through one of the bracket holes.
Repeat on all four sides.
