DIY Round Coffee Table

One of our most requested furniture builds has to be a round table! Whether it’s a coffee table, kitchen table or dining table, we always get requests for a round option! Well, today, we are sharing how to build this DIY Round Coffee Table and, it’s very easy and won’t break the bank! We were able to build this beauty with only seven 2×6 boards for a grand total of $39!

How fun was that?! I love getting creative to save time and money so my favorite part of this build was definitely the corbel cuts! You can also follow along with the build process below and make sure to download the Free Printable Plans!

1. Building the Top and Bottom Pieces

DIY Round Coffee Table

Here is all you need to build this table – seven 2×6 boards. Our first step was to rip the round edges off the boards, making them 5″ wide each. We also ripped the 2×2 boards and the corbel boards from the left over 2×6. This saved us a lot of money! This is not a necessary step but if you choose not to rip your boards, make sure to adjust the measurements and supply list, accordingly!

Once the boards were ripped, we cut the top and bottom planks to size. We drilled 1 1/2″ pocket holes into each plank. You can find our favorite Kreg Jig model HERE!

Then, we attached them together with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue. Refer to the printable plans for the pocket hole placement, direction and spacing of the planks. Build two of these to create a table top and bottom.

We always get asked how we make our table tops so smooth! Our favorite technique is using a Kreg Tool Face Clamp at each pocket hole. This will squeeze the boards together in place while we attach! You can find the 6″ model that we use for our table planking HERE!

Next, we used a plunge router, attached to a circle jig and cut a 38″ diameter circle, from the table top and bottom. You can learn how we made our circle jig HERE! We followed the same steps to create another round piece.

You will need a special router bit for this type of cutting. You can find the one that we used HERE!

2. Attaching Everything

Once the table top and bottom were cut, we moved onto the legs! We cut the legs to size and drilled 1 1/2″ pocket hole on one end of each leg. Then, we turned the table top upside down and attached the legs to the bottom of the table top with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue.

We flipped the table bottom upside down and attached it to the table legs with 2 1/2″ wood screws and wood glue, from the bottom of the table bottom and into each table leg. We used 2 screws per leg.

3. Corbels

DIY Round Coffee Table

The best way to cut the corbels is to rip a 3 1/2″ board from a 2×6 board.

Mark for four 3 1/2″ squares and drill a 2 1/2″ hole in the center of each square, with a hole saw cutter. You can find the hole saw cutter that we used HERE!

Do this for four circles.

Once the four circles are cut, rip the entire piece down he middle to create two boards with four arches. From there, cut each arch in half to create 16 corbels. Check out our how-to video for even more detail on this technique.

Attach four corbels to each leg with 2″ brad nails and wood glue. The corbels should be flush with the legs on the front and back.

4. Finish
