How to Make a Coffee Table with Wheels

Making a coffee table with wheels is a great way to add a unique, stylish piece to your home that is both practical and easily customizable to fit your needs. Here are the steps for making a wheeled coffee table.

Materials Needed

  • Tabletop (any type of wood and design will work, such as plywood, MDF, or a salvaged tabletop)
  • Four casters (two stationary and two swiveling)
  • 4-4 inch MDF boards
  • Wood screws
  • Wood glue
  • Wood saw

Steps to Make the Coffee Table

  1. Measure the dimensions of your table top and cut the four MDF boards to size. Also cut the wood screws to size.
  2. Attach the casters to the boards using wood screws. Make sure that they are leveled and secure.
  3. Glue the boards together (forming a frame) and secure the joints with wood screws.
  4. Place the tabletop on the frame, with two of the casters on the sides and two facing outwards. Use wood screws to attach the tabletop to the frame.
  5. Let the glue and screws dry and test the strength of the table by lifting it and rolling it around.

Extra Tips for Cross-Strength and Stability

For extra strength and stability, use wood corner braces, which are attached inside the corners of the frame. This will create a ‘box-like’ structure that will hold its shape and give the table maximum support and stability.


Making a coffee table with wheels is an excellent way to add style and functionality to your space. With its easy assembly process, you can now enjoy the convenience that comes along with a wheeled coffee table.
