Easy Industrial Coffee Table

Submitted by efmolly on Tue, 09/03/2013 - 12:21

I took Ana's plans for the Easiest Industrial Cart and modified them into a coffee table. I shortened the pieces of angle aluminum to 10", omitted the middle shelf, and added some 7", DIY casters, made from pulley wheels. Since I used 3/4" thick project panels, instead of 2 x 12, I was only able to drill lag screws through one side of each corner of the wood. To add stability, I added small, L-brackets, screwed to the wood and bolted to the aluminum. I included a photo so you can see the modification closely.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$60 plus casters
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used
pre-stain conditioner, Special Walnut stain, wipe-on polyurethane, dark furniture wax.
