Materials Needed:

  • 4 pieces of reclaimed wood
  • 1" single hole L-brackets (8)
  • 1" screws (8)
  • 4" screws (8)
  • casters with 2" screws & washers
  • flat polyurethane, paint or stain
  • tape measure
  • speed square
  • pencil or marker
  • circular saw
  • goggles
  • 220 fine-grit sandpaper
  • paint brush

Measure and Cut Wood

Measure and mark 42 inches on each piece of wood, and cut with a circular saw. Use a speed square to mark a straight line before cutting. Two pieces of the wood will become the top of the table, while the other two will be the bottom.

Cut the Side Pieces

Place two of the cut pieces of wood next to one another, and measure the width. They should measure approximately 15-3/4-inches wide. Using the excess wood, measure, mark and cut four pieces to your measured width. These pieces will become the sides of the coffee table.

Attach Sides

Line up one of the side pieces to one end of the 42-inch pieces. Using four one-inch single hole L-brackets, attach the pieces together with one-inch screws. Repeat on the other side, so that both side pieces are attached.
