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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Assemble the table top by attaching the pieces together. Again, use wood glue, pre-drilled holes, and wood screws to attach the pieces.
  5. Sand the entire piece smooth. Use sandpaper to fine-tune corners, or to make sure there are no rough edges.
  6. Apply a polyeurethane varnish to the entire table. This will help to protect the wood from getting scratched or ruined over time.


Creating a walnut coffee table is a great way to give your home an elegant look. It is an easy project that doesn’t require a lot of tools and can be completed in a couple of hours. With the right materials and a bit of patience, you can create a beautiful piece of furniture to enjoy for years to come.
