Build your own coffee table! The PDF plans include a material cut list, a list of necessary tools & hardware, assembly directions, and dimensions. The overall dimensions of the coffee table are 54″ L x 29″ W x 18″ H
Helpful tips: Always work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always pre-drill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
First, build the tabletop and bottom shelf. Cut all the boards to the specified dimensions and drill each board with the pocket holes indicated in the drawing below. Apply wood glue between each board and fasten with 2 1/2” Kreg screws. Clamp together while glue drys.
Assemble legs. Apply wood glue between each board and use 1 1/4” brad nails to secure together. Drill pocket holes on two adjacent sides of the legs. The pocket holes will be used to fasten the tabletop to each leg.
Connect the tabletop and bottom shelf to each leg. Use the 2 1/2” Kreg screws to fasten each piece.
Add trim pieces. Pre-drill the pocket holes and attach using 1 1/4” Kreg screws. Sand the entire table and add the desired finish.
