About This Project


My sister put in request for bigger coffee table and 2 end tables, again, the building part was not that difficult, the time consuming portion was staining. But they turned out great!

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used: 
I "distress" the wood by using a piece of chaing and just beat it until I get a desired, uniform look. I used 3 coats of stain on each piece and sealed it once complete. I did not sand between coats and I use the cheap foam brushes and just toss them after each coat.


You bet, the measurements are basically double the standard coffee table plan, so 48"x48". You will have to make some changes obviously from the original plans, but I tried to put enough pictures of the process on my blog so you could get a good idea of how to do it. Thanks for looking!

Hi! I LOVE this table! I'm wanting to make this square version and would love a 'shopping list' and 'cut list' like you have for the rectangle version...?

I love this size and you did a fantastic job! I'm going to steal the size of your table for my living room for sure! Thanks for sharing it :)

Could I also get a 'shopping list' and cut list for this project please and thank-you! I love this table! Cannot wait to get building!

What a great table! I would also love to get a shopping list and cut list for this table, would be forever grateful.
