How to Make Ethiopian Coffee Table

Making an Ethiopian coffee table is a great way to show your love for the traditional style and culture. Here’s how to do it:

Materials Needed

  • Wood in the size and shape of a traditional “unto” Ethiopian table
  • Two to four table legs
  • Hand saw
  • Drill
  • Sandpaper
  • Varnish
  • Wood glue
  • Small nails
  • Hammer

Steps to Make the Table

  1. Cutting the Wood: Cut the wood into the shape and size of a traditional Ethiopian “unto” table. Make sure the pieces are even in size.
  2. Drilling Holes for Legs: Drill four evenly distributed holes along the middle of the long sides of the wood. The holes should be large enough to fit the legs.
  3. Attaching the Legs: Insert the legs into the holes in the wood and secure them with some wood glue. Use small nails to reinforce the legs.
  4. Sanding: Use sandpaper to smooth out any rough edges and make sure the surface of the wood is even.
  5. Varnishing: Apply a coat of varnish to the surface of the table and let it dry fully.

And you’re done! Now you have your very own Ethiopian coffee table!
