General Instructions

Cut out all boards except H. To get the best fit, you will measure and precisely cut out each of the boards H to fit the table. Remember, use the 2 3/4″ screws unless otherwise noted and always predrill and countersink your screws. Use glue on all joints to keep the table from seperating later.


Step 1

Screw the Leg Joiner, B to the legs, A, as shown above. Do this on both sets of legs. Use the measurements above to guide you.

Step 2

Screw the side aprons, C, into the ends of the leg joiners, B, as shown above.

Step 3

Now add the end apron spacers, D, as shown above. Screw into the legs and also screw from the inside of B, the leg joiner, into the end edge of D.

Step 4

Now is a good time to check for square. There is a video in the HOW-TO section to help you check for square.

Step 5

Step 6

Now screw the breadboard ends in, as shown above.

Step 7

Check your table for square again. Now measure the center of the table and mark. Take a length measurement (very precise) and cut your first tabletop board, H.

Step 8

Mark and predrill your tabletop board as shown above. Now place the board in the center of the table, as shown in step 8, and screw inplace from the top. Flip the table over and screw through the supports, F, into the bottom of the tabletop pieces, H.

Step 9

Measure, cut, mark, predrill and place your next row of tabletop boards on the top of the table. Repeat step 9. This time, make sure the edges of the tabletop boards line up. Do not leave gap between the tabletop boards.

Step 10

Fill your screw holes with wood putty and let dry. Sand, distress and finish as desired.

I found your through The Shabby Nest, and I am so glad that she introduced me to you, cause I've been wanting one of those Hyde tables!! When I showed it to my husband, he told me that he thought that he could build it, and now I know that he can!! :) I'm going to show him the plans tonight! Maybe I'll have myself a "Hyde" table this week!! :)
Thanks so much and Merry Christmas! Beth.

Ana, is it possible for you to post about how to modify this plan for the console Hyde table? It's PB's skinnier, taller version with a shelf underneath. I would love one of these for behind our sofa...would appreciate any tips or plans you could share. ~Maria

Hi Maria,

Thank you so much for reading my blog and leaving comments!

There actually is a plan online that is very similar to the Hyde Console Table, but super easy to build - I actually labeled it Simple Cheap and Easy Console Table. It is located here:…

I will also be posting plans for the Hyde Console table so check back soon.

Thanks again for stopping by! Ana
