Why We Love this Console Table

Long and narrow, grand in size, this beautiful console table is solid wood construction.  You can paint or stain it any color of your choice.  We love the chunky leg styling, like a frame for the decor you add to the shelves and top.

We love this grand console table in an entryway, hallway, dining room as a buffet, under the tv in a living room or bedroom, or anywhere you could use a surface and some decor.


More Plans in this Collection

Several years ago, I made the square coffee table and the end table.  I still have those projects in my home, as they are sturdy, solid, and beautiful.  With so many requests, I've added a lot more plans to this collection.

Video Tutorial of Building the Similar Square Coffee Table 

The construction methods are all pretty similar between the coffee table and console table plans, so make sure you watch this video for a good idea of how the build process goes.  Do note, you can choose a pocket hole method (recommended) or a brad nail method to build.
