How to Make a Coffee Table with Shelf
Do you want to know how to make your own custom coffee table with shelf? It is easier than you might think with these easy steps:
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will need:
- 1 sheet 4×8 piece plywood
- 1 also 4×8 piece of particle board
- Table Saw
- Circular saw
- Wood Glue
Step 2: Cut the Plywood
Carefully measure the plywood and use the table saw to cut it into two pieces. One piece should measure 36” x 24” for the table top and the other piece should measure 22” x 24” for the shelf. Be sure to use a ruler and level to ensure accurate cutting.
Step 3: Cut the Particleboard
Using the circular saw, cut the particleboard into two pieces. One piece should measure 36” x 4” for the table legs and the other piece should measure 22” x 4” for the shelf supports.
Step 4: Assemble the Table Legs
Use wood glue and screws to attach the two pieces of particleboard together at the ends to form the table legs. Make sure to use a drill to pre-drill the holes before screwing them together.
Step 5: Attach the Legs to the Table Top and Shelf
Apply wood glue to the legs and use screws to attach them to the table top and shelf. Be sure the measurements are accurate and that the screws are secured tightly.
Step 6: Finish the Table
Once your coffee table is assembled, sand it to remove any rough edges and apply a coat of paint or stain to protect the wood. Allow the paint or stain to dry before you use your new coffee table.
