OBG Project – Coffee Table
Yes friends. We have come to the final Oldie But Goodie project: A coffee table match for the Shoe & Hat Rack.
As a companion piece, the design and construction are unsurprisingly similar.
3/8 Galvanized Floor Flange – Lowes (x12 this time.)
3/8 Galvanized Pipe, 12″ Long – Lowes (x6. They’re there. I promise)
3/4″ Plywood, 4′ x 2′ – Lowes (x2. You may find these pre-cut to this size. If that’s the case, awesome. Wood type is up to you.)
Screws – Lowes (Again, I think I used #10 x 3/4″ Flat Head Phillips Wood screws to mount the pipes. Allow me to reiterate that wood screws are the worst)
PanHead Thread-Forming Screws – Lowes (I can’t seem to find the exact ones used on the project. These are for the casters, so reference those. Shouldn’t be any longer than 1/2″.)
2-1/2″ Rubber Casters – Lowes (x4. You can grab ones that lock too if that’s your preference.)
Spray Paint – Lowes (Needed it to match, so again used hammered black.)
Wood Stain – Lowes (Choose based on your preference.)
Polyurethane – Lowes
Sand, stain, and polyurethane the two pieces of wood. Assemble and paint the pipes and flanges.
Stage Build & Assemble
Keeping with the general look and feel of the shoe/hat rack, the pipes were centered 2-1/4″ from the edges in each corner, with the final pair in the center of the long edges. Make sure to pre-drill your holes so assembly goes a bit smoother.
Flipping the table over, square up and mount the casters to each of the four corners. They’re 1-1/2″ from the edges on mine.
If you’re enjoying what you see here, follow me on Twitter @DragonMtnDesign! For those who have been longing for a new 3D printing project, the Prusa i3 MK2 I ordered back in January should arrive early next month! Cross your fingers. We’re almost there.
We eventually want to do something like this for the kitchen that serves as a catch-all/seat for putting on shoes. Love this!!
Thanks! It’s a fairly easy project. The whole thing can be wrapped up in a weekend. Most of the time is spent waiting for the stain/paint/polyurethane to dry.
