I’ve done so many projects over the years, so today I thought I would round-up a bunch of the coffee tables I’ve made in case you might be looking for inspo. Here are 5 DIY coffee table ideas, along with links to each project tutorial. I hope you enjoy!
This coffee table was a fun one that allowed me to experiment with patterned plywood. I created removable panels on the front and back that reveal a storage cubby, and those panels are made out of patterned plywood that I made (through lots of trial and error). You can see the whole process here.
This coffee table was another experiment, this time with welding. I had been playing around with designing and welding different geometric bases, like the one for this desk.
I love the way this table looks, but it was a little bit flimsy, so if I were going to build it again then I would add more support underneath by welding each base/pair of legs together with a support bar which would attach to the tabletop from underneath. You can see the whole project here.
This coffee table is my favorite, and it’s the one I brought with me when I moved into my new house. It’s an easy build, and easy to customize the size too. I used prefabricated hairpin legs which makes the whole project even simpler. Check out the full tutorial here.
This coffee table is near and dear to my heart because it was my first ever welding project. There was a lot of trial and error with this one, and a lot of cuss words, but I was so proud of myself when I finished. Also, even if you don’t weld, the faux marble tabletop was such a money-saver and looks legit! Details here.
I don’t love this coffee table, but it gave me an opportunity to experiment with routing shapes and also I love the cane cutout detail. Tutorial here.
