EP. 50 diy Mid-Century Modern slatted coffee table
Today on Modern Builds, I'll be making a Mid-Century inspired slatted coffee table from solid walnut and maple dowels. This design could easily be made using 2x4 pine as well.
MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES:
2" Thick Walnut
1 1/4" Maple Dowel
Doweling Jig: https://goo.gl/xgrQyE
Tapering Jig: https://goo.gl/fV3JQb
Danish Oil: http://amzn.to/2iOzatO
Wood Glue: http://amzn.to/2iSBK4k
STEP ONE: CUT THE WALNUT
To start, I cut the walnut pieces to length and width
STEP TWO: DRILL HOLES
After chamfering the corners of the slats, I drilled holes to accept the dowels I'll be putting in later during the glue up
STEP THREE: GLUE IT UP
Next, I glued up the table top.
STEP FOUR: CUT THE LEGS
Next, I cut the tapers on the legs.
STEP FIVE: ATTACH LEGS
I used dowels to attach the legs to the table top.
STEP SIX: FINISH
I applied two coats of danish oil to the table as a quick and easy finish.
That's all there is to it! I hope you enjoyed it and go out and make your own. If you do, don't forget to tag me in a picture of it!
