DIY Farmhouse Coffee Table

Farmhouse Coffee Table DIY

When I was trying to decide what style coffee table to add to our living room, I was leaning towards a more rustic and comfortable style. I chose to build a classic, farmhouse coffee table that was easy and simple to build. What I love about this coffee table is the turned table legs, they add just the right amount of classic style, which mixes great with the farmhouse style table top. Further, the legs were ready to build with and didn’t require any sanding or cuts, making this project even easier!

The final size of this farmhouse coffee table is about 48″ long x 25 3/4″ wide x 16″ tall.

How to build a Farmhouse Coffee Table:

Materials:

Tools:

1. Add pocket holes to coffee table top boards

Use a Kreg Jig and drill pocket holes as shown in the photo below on the bottom sides of the three table top boards (the two 1x10s and the one 1×8).

3. Make cuts and add pocket holes to coffee table aprons

Cut the 1x3s for the table aprons to the following sizes with a miter saw:

  • (2) at 19 3/4″
  • (2) at 42″

Then, add pockets holes with a Kreg Jig as shown in the photos below. ***Note, when I took the photo below, on the two 42″ pieces, I forgot to add two Kreg holes on each end (just like the shorter pieces), so make sure to add those additional holes!

4. Attach table legs to table aprons

Using 1 1/4 Kreg screws, attach the short table aprons to the table leg tops 3/4″ in from the edge. It’s easiest to do this using a clamp and a scrap piece of the 1×3 underneath of the apron as shown in the photo below.

Next, attach the long table aprons to the table legs. Here is a photo showing how I did this:

5. Attach coffee table top to table aprons

Finally, attach the coffee table top to the aprons using 1 1/4 Kreg screws. It’s easiest to do this by flipping over the coffee table top and frame. Make sure the frame is centered on the table top before attaching.
