How to Make a Hairpin Coffee Table

The hairpin coffee table is a popular piece of furniture and with the right tools, you can make one at home. Here are some instructions to get you started.

Gather Your Materials

  • Two hairpin table legs
  • One piece of wood for the tabletop (recommended 1” thick)
  • Wood screws

Prepare the Tabletop

Cut the wood piece to the desired size and shape for your table top. Sand the edges to smooth them out. We recommend using a power sander since it will make the job faster and easier.

Attach the Hairpin Legs

Once the tabletop is ready, you can begin attaching the legs. Find the center of the table top and mark it with a pencil. Then use a drill bit to make a pilot hole for the screw. Attach the legs to the tabletop with the screws and make sure they are securely attached.

Finishing Touches

Finally, you can add the finishing touches to your table. Stain or paint the wood as desired and protect it with a sealant for added durability. You can also add decorative accents like rope or leather straps.


Making the hairpin coffee table is a simple DIY project that can be completed in just a few hours. All you need is the right materials and tools, and you’ll have a beautiful new piece of furniture for your home.
