How To Build A Coffee Table?
Following are the steps by following this, we can easily make a coffee table. The steps are:-
Cut Boards For The Top
Use a table saw or hand saw to cut boards to the length you would like your coffee table to be. 32 inches (81 cm) is a good length to try if you’re not sure what size to make it. Cut four boards approximately two inches thick and eight inches wide, to this length to serve as the top of your table. It is also possible to make a coffee table top from a single of suitable wood. We can make a table from wood according to our size and design.
Piece The Top Together
Put wood glue to the small pieces of the wood so that after combine they make a large flat surface known as the top of the table. You only have to glue the sides of the boards that are touching each other. Use glue is of high quality so that there are chances of damaging the wood early is may less possible.
Secure The Top From Screws
Cut 2×4 boards so that you have two lengths of 32 inches each. Position them so that they lie across all of the boards that you glued together to make the top. Place one on each side a couple of inches from the narrower edge of the top. Attach them to the top using wood screws. As a screw can hold the things better and for lifelong thats why, we use a screw to hold or attached our things together.
Cut The Piece For Legs
Using 4x4s cut four pieces to the height you would like your coffee table to be. Approximately 17 inches (43 cm) should be a comfortable height. You will also need to cut two pieces of plywood to 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) by 26 inches (66 cm). Finally, cut two pieces of 2×4 to the length of 19 inches (48 cm). By cutting of this size wood we can get legs of our design type. legs give to support the table as it is considered as the main part of the table.so, we have to make the leg part very strong because whole support is given by the leg part.
Piece The Legs Together
Take one of the pieces of plywood you cut and attach one leg to each end, screwing the plywood down on the top (square end) of each leg. Position one of the 2×4 pieces you cut 4.5 inches (11 cm) from the bottom of the other end of the legs. Screw through the legs into the 2×4 so that it sits between the two legs. Repeat this step for the other set of legs. so that all the legs can attach to the top of the table very easily and strongly connected to the top of the table.
Stain Or Paint Your Coffee Table Pieces
Painting gives the table a new look and new design, as well as new life also as painting, is very important part of the making a table because it prevents our table from dusting, rusting etc. protect our table from many factors.so, painting is an essential part of any table. You can choose to paint your table in a vibrant colour, use varnish for a natural look, or choose a stain to give it a rich, rustic look.
Attach The Legs To The Top
When everything is dry, turn the table top over so that the bottom with the 2x4s is facing up. Turn the legs over so that the plywood attaching them at the top is sitting on top of the 2x4s. Attach the legs by driving screws through the plywood into the 2x4s. Turn everything over, and your table is done.
By following all the above steps our table is ready to use. This way we can make a simple coffee table easily. Enjoy the coffee over the table!
