DIY Coffee Table From a Tree Slab

Making a coffee table out of a tree slab is a great way to add a personalized touch of nature to your home. Not only is a tree slab visually incredible, but it can be a great conversation starter in your living room. With the right materials and a bit of patience, you can create your very own custom coffee table.

Components You Will Need

  • Tree Slab: Choose a slab that is big enough for your coffee table and has a flat surface. You can find tree slabs at many home improvement stores, or you may be able to get one from a local tree removal company.
  • Legs: You need to purchase legs that are the appropriate size for the slab you chose. You can either buy pre-made legs or make them yourself.
  • Saw: You will need a saw to cut the legs to the desired size.
  • Wood Glue: The wood glue will hold the legs securely onto the tree slab.
  • Sandpaper: Sandpaper will help to sand down any rough edges.
  • Stain and Finish: A stain and finish will help protect the wood and give your coffee table a finished look.

Steps to Build Your Coffee Table

  1. Measure the slab and decide on the size of the legs you need.
  2. Cut the legs down to the desired size with the saw.
  3. Apply wood glue to the bottom of the legs and attach them to the tree slab.
  4. Let the glue dry.
  5. Sand down any rough edges with the sandpaper.
  6. Apply the stain and finish to the wood.

That’s all it takes to make your own custom coffee table from a tree slab! With a bit of patience and the right materials, you can create your own stylish, unique piece of furniture.
