The appeal of this coffee table lies in its sleek mid-century modern design and its versatility. Not only can you use it as a coffee table, but it can also double as a bench, providing you with additional seating options. It’s the perfect solution for any gathering or get-together.

Easy and Cost-Effective DIY Project

Building this slat wood coffee table is easier than you might think. With just a few simple steps and basic materials, you can create a stunning piece of furniture that will impress your friends and family. Best of all, it won’t break the bank! You can make this table for around $50, using affordable materials that are readily available.

Step-by-Step Instructions

To get started, you’ll need ten pieces of 1X2 and two pieces of 1X3 cut to your desired table length. You can easily cut these pieces using a miter saw, but a circular saw or even a handsaw will work just as well. Sand all the pieces thoroughly to ensure a smooth finish.

Once your pieces are ready, it’s time to assemble the table. Begin by making a mark 1/2 inch from one end of each of the 2×4 supports. Apply a small line of glue and clamp your first 1×2 slats at the marked spot, with the support six inches from the end of the slat. Secure the slats in place with nails. Repeat this step for the other end of the slat and attach the remaining supports with spacers in between.

Continue adding slats using spacers to keep the boards even and straight. Once you’ve attached all ten top wood slats, add the 1×3 pieces to the sides of the tabletop. Flip the tabletop upside down, align it with the slats, and attach each side slat with brad nails. Fill in any nail holes with wood filler and sand the entire tabletop for a smooth finish.

Next, measure and mark the location of the angled leg brackets on the 2×4 supports. Attach the brackets using screws and twist the legs into the brackets. Finally, finish the table with wood conditioner and stain of your choice.
