DIY Turned Leg Buffet Table

Hey there!!! I am so excited to show you what I have been working on. It is GORGEOUS!!!

DIY-Turned-Leg-ConsoleMeet the newest addition to my dining room – a DIY Turned Leg Buffet Table! I’m in LOVE! This is a 6 foot buffet table with a TON of storage space and although it is large, it was a very easy build! I got the legs from Osborne Wood Products and they are definitely the focal point of this piece! You can purchase the legs HERE (I used 4 knotty pine).

Total cost for this piece was about $350 – not bad for a 6 foot buffet table! I did have some scrap left over that I will be able to use on future projects too!

As always, we have the FREE Printable Plans and a step-by-step tutorial for you! Click HERE or the image below to print the plans.

Free-Plans-Turned-Leg-BuffetA special thanks to our friend Jay from Jay’s Custom Creations for creating the plans! Check his site out for more awesome plans!

I started by gluing the 2 legs together with Gorilla Wood Glue. Β You can purchase the legs HERE!


While the glue was drying, I attached the back panel to the back legs. I used Purebond Plywood, in birch, for this project!


back-assembledNext, I used my Ryobi 18V Jig saw to cut notches in the shelves. (I purchased another sheet of 3/4″ Purebond for the shelves but you can also use a project panel if they have one at your hardware store).


shelvesOnce I cut the notches, I used my Airstrike Nailer and wood glue to attach the 1×2 trim.

attach-shelves-to-legsNext, I attached the bottom shelf to the legs and then the top shelf.

drill-pocket-holesI used my Kreg R3 to drill pocket holes on the back of the shelves. Β The R3 is a great option for your first Kreg Jig tool. I still use mine on large pieces like this!

measure-for-drawersNext, I measured the width of my drawer slides

build-drawersAnd built the drawers to fit my measurements. I like to use my Kreg right angle clamp to hold pieces while I attach them!

attach-face-framesI used my Airstrike Nailer and wood glue to attach the face to the drawers – measure and cut to fit here, as well!


The final step on the drawers is to sand them down so that they slide easily. Β I used my Ryobi Corner Cat with 50-grit to sand the edges.

attach-top-planksI attached the top planks and it’s ready for a finish!

paintI gave it two coats of Sherwin Williams Anonymous and let it dry πŸ™‚




DIY-Turned-Leg-ConsoleThat was it!!!!


save-on-craftsI added a few goodies from Save On Crafts! This is a great online store with so many inexpensive and cute accessories! I ordered this Tiered Serving Tray, the Glass Bottles and the cute Dried Artichokes and they arrived at my house in about a week!

Turned-Leg-DIY-ConsoleI am really LOVING how my dining room is shaping up! Β I DIY’ed EVERYTHING in this room so far (minus the Chandelier and the Rug)! Here is a list with links to everything you see in the room!

    Not sure if you still have this buffet table.. but I was wondering how high the space is between the shelves. Wanting to fit an 18.5 inch microwave down on the middle shelf. Thanks!

  • Anshel Introlegator

    Would it be possible to expand on the drawer building, please? Not very clear, not to me I should add.

    • Have you looked at the plans? They share more details too.

      • Anshel Introlegator

        Thank you. Now I got it.

  • Karen Nunya

    I have Sherwin Williams Anonymous on my BR walls, and it has taken on an Olive tone- not so on your beautiful buffet. Great work as always!
