How to make a coffee table with Crates

Are you looking for an interesting and creative way to make a coffee table in your living space? Look no further than crates! With a few simple items, you can create a unique coffee table that will fit any style.

Materials Needed

  • Crates of your chosen size and quantity
  • Stain or Paint of your choice
  • Wood Screws
  • Wood Glue
  • Circular Saw
  • Power Drill
  • 90-degree Angle
  • Level
  • Sandpaper
  • Table Top

Step 1: Prepare The Crates

Before you start building the table, you will need to prepare the crates. Begin by lightly sanding them to remove any imperfections. Once you have done that, you can choose to either stain or paint the crates. If you choose to paint them, let them dry for at least 24 hours before proceeding.

Step 2: Assemble the Crates

Once the crates are dry, you can begin assembling them into the shape of your choosing. Start by measuring out the space that you’d like your table to take up and then use raw wood screws and wood glue to connect the crates together. Make sure the crates are square and level with each other before proceeding.

Step 3: Attach The Table Top

Once the crates are connected and secure, you can begin attaching your table top to them. Measure out where you would like the table top to sit and make sure it is level. Then use the power drill to attach the table top with screws from underneath.

Step 4: Secure The Table

Finally, for extra stability, secure the crates and table top with 90-degree angle brackets on the corners. Make sure the brackets are secured properly and then sand down any rough edges before enjoying your finished product.

And that’s it! With some patience and the right materials, you now have a unique coffee table made from crates.
