Once you have located the right DIY coffee table plans, completion of your project will take just a few hours. Coffee tables can be created with just a few supplies and tools, many of which you probably already have on hand. Then some stain, varnish or paint and you’re done. In fact, the longest time involved may be choosing the style of table that you want to build.
Table plans range from simple to complex. Many plans indicate the skill level needed to complete the project. Beginners should choose plans that will allow inexpensive wood to be used. That way if a mistake is made, it will not be a costly one to replace the miss-cut section.
Intermediate and Expert level woodworkers started out by completing simple projects. Each completed project adds new skills. The availability of pre-cut wood, spindles and routed trim will allow beginners to tackle some of the more complex coffee tables plans with ease.
