I saw this table on a website and thought it was cool.  I thought to myself, I wonder if I could make this but put my spin on it.  The top of the table I liked was concrete, I think, but I wasn’t ready to do that just yet. 

I wanted the whole table to be made out of wood, but I wanted it to be nice hardwood, not framing lumbar.  The products I used for this project are:

# 38600 Poplar 1×3

# 21065 poplar 1×6

# HD 1521 N 0200 stain brush

# 62000 gorilla glue

# 281541 polyurethane semi gloss 

# GSCC4PK-C bessey clamps

# P320 ryobi brad nailer

# 4191020400606 spax screws

# PBN18200-1 2 in brad nails

I went to my local Home Depot and saw a selection of hardwoods, but wanted some variations in the wood.  I ended up going with poplar.  Some 1×3’s for the legs and 1×6’s for the tabletop.

I knew I wanted the legs and the tabletop to be thick, so I got enough to be able to glue 2 boards together to give it that look I was going for using gorilla wood glue.

Now, for the fun part.  I cut the boards down to size to glue them up using the gorilla wood glue and clamped them using the bessey clamps to make sure they stayed secure.  I let them dry overnight.

The next day, I mitered the ends before assembling and attached the ends using  2in 18-gauge brad nails and my Ryobi brad nailer.  

I sanded all the boards down to a smooth surface and attached the long rectangular shape leg to the short rectangular shape legs from the bottom using 2&1/2in spax screws.

For the finish, I used 2 coats of polyurethane semi gloss using a stain brush, and voila… you have yourself a pretty sofa table.  You can even use it as an entryway table or whatever your heart so desires.
