Inside: Build a set of four living room tables for around $160; coffee table, console table and end tables. It works well with many design styles such as farmhouse, coastal and rustic.
This post will provide all the tools, supplies and woodcuts to make a set of four living room tables. Here is what you will be building.
A coffee table.
And end tables.
Refer to each individual post for the build tutorial.

CUTS FOR DIY SET OF LIVING ROOM TABLES
The coffee table measures app. 48L x 22W x 16T inches. The console table measures app. 60L x 18W x 30T inches including the 5-inch casters. The end tables measure 24L x 18W x 24T inches. Adjust your measurements according to your sizing preference. Due to variances in wood thickness, errors in measurements and cuts, I recommend cutting your wood as you progress through the build. Remember always measure twice, cut once. To get a list of cuts for a specific table refer to each individual post. Otherwise here is an image of your woodcuts for the plywood and 2 x 2s to make all four tables and have the least amount of scrap leftover. Unfortunately for the second piece of plywood only one piece is needed. So if you have a piece of scrap plywood that is large enough you can cut about $45 off of the cost.
2 x 2 Cuts
Enjoy your new tables!
