$40 Sofa Table

Hi! My sweet children kept jumping over the couch so I needed to do something about the madness!  I decided to build an inexpensive sofa table to attempt to minimize the jumping. Will it work? It's a mystery :)



Let's get started!

As always, use caution when building, wear safety gear and re-read instructions multiple times. This plan is for entertainment purposes only.

Supplies:
3-2x12x8
1-package of 2-1/2" pocket hole screws
Finishing supplies: stain, paint, seal

Tools:
Miter saw
Drill
Pockethole Jig
Table saw (optional)
Planer (optional)

Step 1: (optional) using a table saw rip 1/8" off each side of the 2x12x8 board. Run boards thru a planer if you have one.

Step 2: Using a miter saw cut- 4 @ 28" 1 @ 38" 1 @ 68"

Step 3: Build the legs. Drill 1-1/2" pocket holes on boards 1 & 2. Mark the 1/2 way point on board 2. Place board 1 on top of board 2 creating a t-shape. Attach board 1. to. board 2 using 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.

Step 4: Drill 1-1/2" pocket holes in both ends of 38" board. and attach bottom self to both legs. 

Step 5: Center the table legs/base on the tabletop and attach using 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.

Step 6: Finish table as desired.
