Free plans to build an Adirondack coffee table - includes video plans!
• 3 - 1x4 @ 8 feet long
• 3 - 2x4 @ 8 feet long
• 2 1/2” exterior screws
• 2” exterior deck screws or galvanized finish nails (for nailing top down)
• 2 - 2x4 @ 44 1/2” (side aprons)*
• 3 - 2x4 @ 20 1/2” (end aprons)
• 4 - 2x4 @ 15 1/4” (legs)
• 6 - 1x4 @ 47 1/2” (tabletop) *
*NOTE: I took 1/2” off these measurements to conserve board use. Cut list is correct.
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Attach long aprons to shorter aprons by predrilling holes with the countersink bit and screwing 2 1/2” exterior screws into predrilled holes. Take a second to check for square by measuring diagonally from corner to corner and adjusting so diagonal measurements are the same.
I recommend adding an additional 2x4 support (20 1/2" long and in cut list) to the center - attaching exactly as you do the end aprons.
