Making a Tree Trunk Glass Coffee Table

What You Will Need:

  • Glass for the top
  • Tree trunk
  • Table legs
  • Drill and screws
  • Screws and nails
  • Finishing tools/materials

Steps to Build the Table:

  1. Find a tree trunk: the trunk should be dried and stable before you use it.
  2. Prepare the Tree Trunk: Sand and clean your tree trunk. Depending on the condition of the trunk, you may need to fill in any cracks to ensure it stands properly.
  3. Choose the Legs: Your choice of legs will depend on the style you’re going for. You can use metal legs, hairpin legs, or exposed pipe legs.
  4. Attach the Legs: Make sure to use screws and drill holes into the trunk. Secure the legs with the screws.
  5. Measure the Glass: You can go for either circular, rectangular, or square shapes for your top. Make sure to measure your tree trunk top before you cut the glass.
  6. Cut the Glass: Cut the glass to the size you need and then use sandpaper to smooth the edges.
  7. Attaching the Glass: Put your glass onto the top of the trunk and secure it with nails and screws.
  8. Finishing: You will most likely need to apply sealant, stain, or varnish the tree trunk.

Your Tree Trunk glass coffee table should now be complete. Enjoy your beautiful and one of a kind DIY project!
