How to Make a Coffee Table with Metal Legs
The combination of wood and metal creates truly unique designs for home décor projects, such as a DIY coffee table. By combining wooden planks with metal legs, you can design a modern on-trend coffee table that’s perfect for your space. Here are the steps for how to make a coffee table with metal legs:
Step 1: Choose Materials and Tools
- Materials: Plywood, metal legs, screws, wood glue, drill and drill bits.
- Tools: Screwdriver, drill, saw, clamps, measuring tape and pencil.
Step 2: Measure and Cut Plywood
The size of your plywood will depend on the measurements of your metal legs. Measure out the desired size of your coffee table and mark with a pencil. Use a saw to cut out the plywood.
Step 3: Attach Metal Legs to Plywood
Place the plywood onto a flat, clean surface. Place the metal legs onto the bottom corner of the plywood piece. Fasten the legs to the plywood by screwing in with a drill and drill bit, and then secure with wood glue. Repeat for the remaining three corners. Allow the glue to dry before moving to the next step.
Step 4: Add Finishing Touches
For extra stability, attach the metal legs to each other with screws. You can also customize and add features to your coffee table like a shelf, pocket holes and a wooden or metal top. Once you have attached all the desired features, your coffee table is ready to be enjoyed.
Creating your own DIY coffee table is a great way to add a personalized touch to your home. Follow these steps to make your own custom coffee table with metal legs, and enjoy a unique and stylish table to complete your space.
