How to Make an Easy Coffee Table

When it comes to furniture, the coffee table is a staple in the home. Not only can it bring a nice bit of style to a room, but it’s also incredibly practical. Have a read through the following steps to learn how to make an easy coffee table.

Gather Your Supplies

Before you start putting together your coffee table you’re going to need some supplies.

  • Wood – Base and tabletop
  • Screws – to attach the pieces
  • Sandpaper – for smoothing the wood
  • Wood Glue – for a stronger adhesive
  • Wood Stain – for the finishing touch

Build the Table Base

Now it’s time to start building your table base. Cut four pieces of wood to form a frame, attaching the pieces with screws and wood glue to make sure they are well held together. Now do the same with pieces of wood to create the inner structure.

Lay the Top

The next step is to lay the top of your table. To do this, cut the piece of wood to the exact dimensions of your frame and then use the screws and wood glue to attach. Again, make sure everything is securely held together.

Smoothing & Finishing

Now it’s time to start sanding down your coffee table. Start with a light grade of sandpaper and work up to a finer grit until you have a smooth, polished finish. Once you’re done sanding, you can apply the wood stain of your choice for the final touch.


And there you have it! You now know how to make an easy coffee table. Enjoy your new furniture and revel in the glory of having made it yourself.
