Make a Super Sofa Table

Comments (0)

This contemporary table takes advantage of readily available materials and case joinery accomplished with splines and pocket screws. The frame’s strength comes from its core. Whereas a solid wood panel needs to float in order to accommodate seasonal changes in humidity, a plywood panel can be glued within the frame, essentially creating a single, solid assembly.

I used 1/2" primed plywood for the panels, and made the frames from stair treads, which I like because they’re made from clear, straight lumber, of the appropriate thickness. Alternatively you could mill your solid wood parts from 5/4 stock.

Note: The table’s dimensions can be adjusted to make a narrow hall table or short side table.
