How to Build a Black HOMCOM Lift-top Coffee Table
Coffee tables are an important piece of furniture in virtually every home. Having a coffee table with a lift-top is even better, since it offers a plethora of potential uses. A black HOMCOM series lift-top coffee table is a great way to add a modern and contemporary feel to any living space. Here’s how to build one of your own.
Tools and Materials
Before getting you can get started, you’ll need to gather together the right tools and materials. These include:
- Miter saw
- Table saw
- Wood glue
- Stainless steel screws
- Black paint
Step 1: Cut the Necessary Pieces for the Base
The first step is to cut the pieces necessary for the base. This includes four legs, four side panels, and one top panel. To ensure a proper fit, use a miter saw with a zero-clearance edge.
Step 2: Assemble the Base
Once all of the pieces have been cut to size, it’s time to assemble the base. Start by drilling pilot holes for the legs. Then use wood glue, screws, and nails to fasten the side panels and top panel together. Clamp the pieces together while they dry.
Step 3: Attach the Hinges to the Top Panel
The next step is to attach the hinges to the top panel. This will allow the table top to be lifted up. Use stainless-steel screws to attach the hinges securely.
Step 4: Apply the Finish
Once the base has been assembled and the hinges have been attached, it’s time to give the table a final finish. Sand the surface down first, then apply a black paint or stain. You can also use wood filler to fill in any gaps or defects.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Finished Coffee Table
After the finishing touches have been applied, your black HOMCOM lift-top coffee table is complete. Enjoy its modern and contemporary look in your living space!
