How to Make a Jig for Making a Lattice Coffee Table

Making a lattice coffee table can be a difficult and time-consuming job, but using a jig can make it much easier. A jig will allow you to create perfectly spaced and symmetrical lattice for your coffee table without having to measure and re-measure your angles and spacing. Here are the steps for creating a jig to make a lattice coffee table.

Materials Needed

  • 2 pieces of flat plywood equal in width to the desired lattice width
  • Table saw
  • Plywood clamps
  • Wood glue
  • Cordless drill
  • Screws


  • Create the Template: Start by cutting both pieces of plywood to width equal to the desired lattice width. Once both pieces are cut, use wood glue and plywood clamps to attach the two pieces together. Allow the glue to dry, before drilling holes for the screws.
  • Add the Spacers:Using a table saw, cut a series of spacers from a scrap piece of wood. These spacers should be as wide as the desired lattice spacing, plus the combined thicknesses of the two plywood boards. Position each spacer onto the plywood template and use a cordless drill to secure them in place with screws.
  • Test the Jig:On a flat surface, set the jig on top and place the lattice pieces on top. Arrange the lattice pieces to line up with the spaces in the jig. If everything lines up, your jig is ready for use.

Creating a jig for making a lattice coffee table is simple and can save you time and effort in the long run. With a jig, you can easily create perfectly spaced and symmetrical lattice for your coffee table. Just follow the steps above and you’ll have your jig ready to go!
