How to Build a DIY Angled Console Table

Supplies

Tools

Building the Top

Step 1: Pocket Holes

Cut the planks to size and drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes along one edge of 3 of the planks with a Kreg Jig.

Attach the planks together with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue.

Building the Base

Step 1: Build the Legs

Cut the legs and top supports to size and drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes at the long point ends of each leg. Attach them to the top supports with 1 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue. Build 2 leg assemblies.

Cut the bottom supports to size and attach them between the legs with 2 1/2″ wood screws and wood glue. Do this for both leg assemblies.

Attach the leg assemblies to the bottom of the planked top with 2 1/2″ wood screws and wood glue.

Step 2: Supports

Cut the runner to size, center it on the bottom leg supports and attach it with 2 1/2″ wood screws and wood glue from the outside of the supports and into the runner.

Cut the cross supports to size and attach them to the bottom of the planked top and the top of the runner with 2 1/2″ wood screws and wood glue.

Step 3: Extensions

Cut the runner extensions to size, center them and attach them to the bottom leg supports with 2 1/2″ finish nails and wood glue.

Cut the leg extensions to size and attach them to the outside of the legs with 2 1/2″ finish nails and wood glue.

    Beautiful console. My husband and I built it today. I think the measurement on step 2 is incorrect. Distance between top support beam and leg is less than 2 3/8. at least it didn’t add up for us 🙂

    Super great instructions tho! Thank you
