How To Make A Guitar Case Coffee Table

Don’t want to get rid of your old guitar case? Why not give it a second life by turning it into an eye-catching coffee table? A guitar case coffee table is the perfect accent piece for a music-lover’s home. It’s creative, affordable, and a great conversation starter. Here’s how you can make your own:


  • An old guitar case
  • Stain, wood filler, and paint or lacquer of your choice
  • Plywood for the table top
  • 4 furniture legs
  • Drill and screws
  • Safety equipment (goggles, dust mask, gloves)


  • Clean and repair the case: If the case is scratched, fill in the scratches with wood filler. Once the wood filler is dry, sand it down. Wipe the exterior down with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt.
  • Paint: Follow the directions for your desired paint or lacquer of choice. Apply multiple coats for complete coverage.
  • Create plywood table top: Measure the guitar case and cut the plywood to be 2-3 inches larger than the case on all sides.
  • Attach the furniture legs: Place the furniture legs at a 90 degree angle on the plywood and mark where you need to drill. Use polyurethane glue to attach the legs.
  • Screw the guitar case onto the top: Place the guitar case on the plywood and mark where you will need to drill. Use the screws to secure the case to the table.
  • Enjoy: Place the table in your home and admire your custom creation.

Making a guitar case coffee table is a fun and creative project that will stay with your family for years to come, and it’s much cheaper than buying a new table. With a bit of time and dedication, you’ll have an amazing centrepiece for your living space in no time.
