How to Make a Walnut Coffee Table
- 3/4” walnut wood
- Table saw
- Circular saw
- Cordless drill & drill bit
- Wood glue
- Wood screws
- Sand paper
- Polyeurethane varnish
- Start by cutting the lumber to the desired size. Measure out the dimensions of the finished table, then use a table saw to cut the pieces to size.
- Cut slots in the ends of the cross pieces. Use a circular saw to make the cuts, then measure and mark the spot on each piece. The slots will allow the cross pieces to fit around the table legs.
- Attach the cross pieces to the legs. Use a cordless drill and drill bit to pre-drill some holes, then add some wood glue and attach the pieces with wood screws.
- Assemble the table top by attaching the pieces together. Again, use wood glue, pre-drilled holes, and wood screws to attach the pieces.
- Sand the entire piece smooth. Use sandpaper to fine-tune corners, or to make sure there are no rough edges.
- Apply a polyeurethane varnish to the entire table. This will help to protect the wood from getting scratched or ruined over time.
