Why We Love this Farmhouse Console Table

It all started with our farmhouse coffee table, that I built a few years back -

Then came the matching double wide console table -

And the farmhouse side tables -

The beauty of this collection is it can be used indoors or out.  So when we needed a table to elevate a portable blackstone grill on top of, this was the perfect plan!

How this Farmhouse Console Table was Built

This console is a fairly simple built, here's how it's put together:

Build two of the leg sets, see how the 2x6 protrudes past?

Use the 2x6 overhang to attach 2x2s at the top and bottom to create the overall frame for the console table.

Then just add 2x6 slats for the bottom shelving.  In this project, we used pocket holes for hidden fasteners - but you can use self tapping screws too (as done in the coffee table build video here)

Here's a view of all the pocket holes used.

Then just add the X detailing on the end using a scribe and cut method.

Finally, add the top from the underside.

Step 1

Attach the legs to the 2x6s as shown.  

If using 2-1/2" self tapping screws, simply screw the 2x4s to the 2x6 ends.

If using pocket holes, drill 1-1/2" pocket holes on the ends of the 2x6 (also drill two pocket holes for attaching the 2x2 aprons in step 3) and attach to the 2x4 with 2-1/2" pocket hole screws and glue.

Create two leg sets identical.

Step 2

It's easiest to create the X detailing now, before the sides are part of the project.

I recommend a scribe and cut method, where you hold the 2x2 in place, and trace the cuts with a pencil, then cut and attach.

I attach with 2-1/2" self tapping wood screws or 2" brad nails and glue.

Step 3

Attach the 2x2 aprons to the 2x6 pieces as shown.

Step 4

Attach the bottom 2x6 shelving pieces - in this project we used 1-1/2" pocket holes and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws to attach.  Spacing between slats on bottom shelf as shown is about 1/8".


Step 5

Attach the top 2x10 boards to the tabletop with 2-1/2" self tapping screws and glue.
