Hey guys! I’m still working on my game room upstairs and after I built the PB Inspired Benchwright Coffee Table, I was on a mission to find the perfect end tables. I turned to our friend, Ana, for ideas and she did it again!
She introduced me to a beautiful end table that retailed for $399!
With Ana’s help, I built my own inspired version for $16.50 each….$33 for the set! NOT EVEN KIDDING:)
These tables were EASY, EASY, EASY! Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by all of the angle cuts. I have NEVER cut an angle beyond the standard corner miter so I was a little intimidated at first but….I believe you learn through experience so I dove in and was surprised at how easy it was. It took me about 30 minutes to assemble each table!
Here’s a few pics of my building process:) You can see the plans HERE!
Table top! I could not have built this table without my Kreg Jig! It made the tables so sturdy!!
I just LOVE how well they play off of the Benchwright Coffee Table:) They would also make great bed side tables!
2 tables for $33 compared to 1 for $399! Score! Now here’s the cool part… If you do not own a compound miter saw, you can always use a hand saw and a miter box to build these tables (will be cheaper at the moment but more time consuming). A good compound miter will run you about $399 right now and that is the cost of one of these Pottery Barn tables! It will pay for itself with this project alone! So, if you have been debating whether or not to make the purchsase, now is the perfect time! We LOVE ours and they are so easy to work with:)
Some tips I learned along the way:
~A bevel cut is made with the top adjustment of the compound saw.
~An angle cut is made with the bottom adjustments of the compound saw.
~Not parallel means that both angles at the ends of the board will not be parallel.
~Parallel means that both angles at the ends of the boards will be parallel.
If you love the tables I would LOVE pins! Thanks for stopping by!
