Trestle Coffee Table

  • October 9, 2018

This is my third furniture project and my most ambitious.

Table is 45Lx45Lx19H. I adapted plans from The Rozy Home as I wanted a square table instead of a rectangular table.

All lumber used was 2x6 pine. Ripped as needed to create 1.5 x1.5 needed for lower trestle and top edges.

Finish is Rustoleum chalk paint over ebony stain. Trestle is white, top is grey. Distressed then coated with Rustoleum Chalk Clear Spray.

I have classified this as advanced due to the complexity of the compound miter cuts required and the number of hours spent designing, cutting, assembling and finishing.

Tools used: 12" Compound Miter Saw, 10" Table Saw, Drill, Belt Sander, Random Orbital Sander, Kreg K5 Jig

  • This is the coolest build I've seen in quite a while. Those 

    angles would've had me pulling my hair out! Nice work.
