How To Build a Coffee Table from Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed wood is a great option for those looking to add unique character and design to their home. Creating a coffee table out of reclaimed wood is a relatively easy and simple project that you can accomplish in a day. Here are the steps to take to make this project a reality.
- Reclaimed wood.
- Circular saw.
- Wood glue.
- Table legs.
- Wood screws.
- Clear finish.
Step 1: Cut the Wood
Using the circular saw, cut the reclaimed wood into the desired size and shape for the coffee table. Sand the edges of the boards with the sandpaper to make them smooth to the touch.
Step 2: Glue the Boards Together
Apply a liberal amount of wood glue to the edges of the boards, and firmly press them together. Let the glue dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Step 3: Attach the Table Legs
Position the table legs where you want them, then use a screwdriver and wood screws to secure them to the coffee table. Make sure the legs are evenly spaced and securely attached.
Step 4: Apply a Clear Finish
To protect and seal the wood, apply a clear finish. This will keep the wood looking great for many years to come.
Congratulations! You have now completed your coffee table project. Now you can enjoy the unique character of your reclaimed wood coffee table.
