Step-By-Step Guide to Building a Round Coffee Table With Storage

This guide will show you how to build a beautiful and functional round coffee table with storage. With these simple steps and materials, anyone can build a sturdy and stylish round coffee table that will be the perfect complement to their living room.

Materials List

  • 1x 12-inch tube of wood glue
  • 2’ x 4’ sheet of ¾” plywood
  • Miter saw, jigsaw, and drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Sandpaper
  • Wood screws
  • Stain and varnish


  • Using a miter saw, cut out two circles from the ¾” plywood. They will form the top and bottom of your coffee table. Measure the diameter before cutting. The desired size of your table will determine how big to make your circles.
  • Next, cut two round rings from the remaining plywood, using the jigsaw. These will form the sides of the table, so measure the width of the table and make sure to subtract 1/2 inch for the bottom circle. The width of the ring should match this measurement.
  • Now, it’s time to glue the pieces together. Apply wood glue to the edges of the top and bottom circles and attach the side rings. Clamp the table to hold while the glue dries. Once dry, screw in the wood screws to hold the parts together.
  • Using sandpaper, sand down all the joints to get them smooth. Wipe off the dust with a damp cloth.
  • Next, drill in the side rings to create additional storage space for items. The size of the holes will be determined by the size of the items you will be storing.
  • Apply stain and varnish to the table to protect it from wear and tear. Allow the table to dry completely before using.

And there you have it – a beautiful, functional round coffee table with storage that you can proudly display in your living room. With these easy instructions, and the right materials, anyone can build a sturdy and stylish coffee table that will last for many years.
