Rustic coffee table. Easy to build.


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Top Shelf

Use your cut pieces of 2x10 for this. Drill pocket holes in 2 of your 36" pcs and both your 28" pcs. Glue and screw all pieces together. Sand and finish to your liking


Bottom shelf

Use your cut pieces of 1x6 for this. Drill pocket holes in 3 of your 34 1/2 " pcs. Glue and screw all 4 pieces together. Sand and finish to your liking.



Use your cut peices of 2x3. Use 4 19" pcs to build one leg. Repeat for second leg. Attach your first 19" to 2 other 19" mounted flush. Use your remaining piece mounted 3" from the bottom. Attach your 34 1/2 " pcs to each leg mounted flush at the top. Sand and paint


Attach bottom shelf

Make sure that you drill pocket holes into your bottom shelf before finishing it. It will need 2 per piece at each end to be attached to the frame. Makes a better finish to paint and stain individually and then mount them.


Attach top shelf

Drill pilot holes through the frame. Attach top shelf from the bottom making sure not to go through the top
