Making a Wooden Coffee Table
Step 1: Gather the materials:
- 4x4ft sheet of plywood
- 2x4ft sheet of particle board
- 12-15 2×2 lumber
- Wood screws
- Wood glue
- Circular saw
- Power drill
- Wood stain
Step 2: Cut the Boards
Using the circular saw, cut the plywood sheet into two equal-sized pieces. Keep in mind that 4’x4′ sheets have a variation of 1/16″ from one side to the other. Cut the particle board into two equal-sized pieces as well.
Step 3: Assemble the Tabletop
Apply wood glue to the particle board pieces and place them on top of the plywood pieces. Secure them with wood screws.
Step 4: Attach the Legs
Using the power drill, attach 3 of the 2×2 lumber pieces to each corner of the table top. Secure them with wood screws.
Step 5: Finish the Tabletop
Use the router to round off the edges of the plywood. Sand the table top smooth with the sandpaper. Finally, apply the wood stain to give the table top a finished look.
Step 6: Enjoy your Coffee Table
Congratulations, you have just created your own wooden coffee table! Sit back, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee with your new masterpiece.
