When it comes to making our own furniture pieces, we’ll admit that there are certain kinds of furnishings that we totally play favourites with. For example, we’ve always enjoyed making tables. Coffee tables and side tables are especially enjoyable because they’re small enough to feel manageable even though we still get to feel the accomplishment of having created an entire piece of furniture in the end. Recently, however, we’ve been thinking about how much nicer a rounded table would look in our living room and, since we’re feeling pretty open to a challenge, we’re determined to find a tutorial that will help us make one ourselves.
1. Rounded wooden coffee table with a rounded base
Are you just as big a fan of some good old fashioned wooden symmetry as we are? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll get along quite swimmingly indeed with the way this tutorial from Shanty 2 Chic clearly outlines the process for making a rounded woodem coffee table that has a matching rounded wooden base!
2. Round wooden coffee table with metal braced cross legs
Perhaps you’re actually convinced that making a rounded wooden table top and a rounded base that matches inch for inch is a little too much work for you and you’d rather keep the legs and base of your table a little more simple? Well, just to keep things equally solid without using the extra wood, here’s a tutorial from James Costiglio that teaches you how to make a rounded top coffee table with crossed legs. We really appreciate the way they braced the legs with metal brackets for a little extra solidity.
3. Shining top, mod looking rounded coffee table
What if you really liked the idea of a rounded topped coffee table and a cross braced set of legs but you’re looking for something in a slightly bigger size that is a little more modern looking in its style than what we just showed you above? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at the way djubar1975 made this one with a glossed top!
4. Rounded industrial coffee table
Just in case your home has a slightly more industrial chic influenced aesthetic, here’s another tutorial for your consideration! This time, you’ll find A Diamond in The Stuff teaching you how to make a stained wooden table top with that rounded shape you love so much, but with cross braced legs made from metal piping instead of more wood. We love the way the two pieces of the table contrast with each other.
