Rustic X Coffee Table

Submitted by thegunnah on Mon, 04/21/2014 - 08:12

This was the second coffee table I've built using Ana's plans and I'm so grateful for this website! The plans are easy to follow and adapt for truly "custom" furniture and a fraction of what you would pay for similar pieces in a store or online.

I adapted the plans to make the table a little shorter and I only used four 2 x 6 boards for the table top instead of five so that it would fit in with our couch a little better.

I saved a little bit of money by using furring strips for the 2 x 2s and I opted for 3/4" plywood for the bottom shelf.

The Kreg Jig (i get by with the little R3 but I'm hoping to upgrade someday soon) is invaluable for projects like this.

I'm looking to scale back the project to fit into my living room - do you mind sharing your final dimensions?
