I’m not exactly sure why, but I went on a crazy end table kick the last couple weeks. We’ve been considering new end tables for our living room but couldn’t decide on a style, so I just went ahead and built a few! Here’s the first set of plans – a modern farmhouse DIY end table.
The best part? All you need is 2x4s and a 15″ round top (or you can make your own tabletop).
Enjoy the plans!
TOOLS & SUPPLIES
- 4 | 2 x 4 @ 23″ with a 5 degree parallel miter on each end (legs)
- 2 | 2 x 4 @ 9 3/4″ with a 5 degree perpendicular miter on each end (bottom frame)
- 2 | 2 x 4 @ 6″ with a 5 degree perpendicular miter on each end (top frame)
This is optional, but I ripped the rounded edges off my 2x4s to make the table look a little more square. A standard 2×4 is 3 1/2″ wide. To get rid of the round edges, rip 1/4″ off each long side. That leaves you with 2x4s that are 3″ wide. I wrote the following plans for 3″ wide 2x4s, but all you have to adjust is the width of the half laps if you keep the rounded edges (explained below). Everything else can stay the same.
