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.  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.  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.  I used my Ryobi Corner Cat with 50-grit to sand the edges.

install-drawersPerfect fit 🙂

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 🙂




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!  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!

  1. I forgot one more thing.

    I would like to start expanding my husbands power tools (or regular tools) and buying him one new/necessary tool at a time. You used to like to do wood projects but has lost his interest. My hope is that having more and the right tools will it make the projects easier for him and spark his enthusiasim again.

    Right now, he has a circular saw, a cordless drill, and a sander. What tools and in what order of importance would you put them in as far as using them to build all of your furniture, lol!

    Thanks again.

  2. I LOVE everything you do and it is so nice of you to share your plans and ideas with us for free, thank you!

    I don’t know if I am missing the info but what size legs did you use….they have so many to choose from when you click on the link.

    Thank you

  3. 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!

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

  5. 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!

  6. I have to admit, I am not fond of the color choice (just not me) but the actual buffet is awesome!!!!!!! I love love love the style of this. AND what an easy build…I want to try this!

  7. Awesome! Thank you so much! I will certainly send pics – going to order the legs now. Thank you for being such an inspiration ladies! Keep up the great work!

  8. Your buffet table is Gorgeous and love them legs and with your white dish pieces really is stunning. Love it and you have done a wonderful job
