Some of my favorite projects to work on involve making furniture. I’m not even close to being an expert at it but I’m always willing to give something a try. Once you have located the right DIY coffee table plans, completion of your project will take just a few hours. Coffee tables can be created with just a few supplies and tools, many of which you probably already have on hand.
Then some stain, varnish or paint and you’re done. In fact, the longest time involved may be choosing the style of table that you want to build. And there are so many great design ideas out there on Pinterest or the woodworking forums. It’s pretty easy to get a good set of plans and start a new project. One piece of furniture that I recently made was a DIY coffee table with storage.
Table plans range from simple to complex. Many plans indicate the skill level needed to complete the project. Beginners should choose plans that will allow inexpensive wood to be used. That way if a mistake is made, it will not be a costly one to replace the miss-cut section.
