General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1

First, build the top frame.

Step 2

Then add the tabletop boards. You can build the tabletop first, then attach too.

NOTE: I recommend adding 5″ to the tabletop boards and omitting the breadboard ends.

Step 3

Now build two of the sides. Again, you can build the side panels first, then attach side trim.

Step 4

And then add the legs. Try PHs on the insides – 3/4″ and 1 1/4″ PH screws.

NOTE: You will want your legs to fit the length of your caster wheels. This plan assumes your caster wheels have an overall clearance of 2″ and your 1x12s are 11 1/4″ wide.

Step 5

Now it’s starting to look like a coffee table!

TIP: I recommend metal brackets.

Step 6

If you did the breadboards ….

Step 7

Build the bottom box. Attach plywood to bottom.

Step 8

And then the little drawer faces!

Finishing Instructions

Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed
