Miter Saw or Circular Saw

Tape measure

Step 1:  Cut wood, drill pocket holes and sand

using a kreg jig to drill pocket holes
Cut all your wood to the specified dimensions using a Kreg Jig and drill 1 1/2'' pocket holes into each end of your 4-2x2 apron supports and your 6 rails and 1 middle support pieces.

Step 2:  Build your sides

Build the sides of the table frame
Build two sides by attaching your rails to your sides with pocket hole screws.

Step 3: Add Aprons and Support boards

Add aprons and support boards
Using wood glue and 2 1/2'' pocket hole screws attach your top aprons and support pieces to your sides.  Note:  You will also add your middle support boards in the center of the top aprons (not pictured), I added it as a last minute support board.

Step 4:  At this point I did my finish on my frame and the top and shelf boards before I proceeded with the rest of the build, this is optional.

Step 5:  Add top and Shelf boards to frame.

Easy DIY table
This is a really quick build, I bought the wood and had it built before my kids got home from school. Well technically I hadn't attached the top and shelf boards yet, but the base was built and spray painted!

This is such a versatile piece too.  I can be used behind a sofa, for your TV and media, or as an entry table.

  1. Beautiful build on this diy console table Mindi! I love how it turned out. You're a master builder, ;)



  2. I’m confused why there’s a 70 inch 2x6 for the top and then 3 2x10’s for the shelves and top when there is only 3 shelves total. Am I missing something?


Your comments make me smile! I love to hear what you think!
