How To Build Plywood End Tables For $6 Dollars Each – Photo Step By Step




If you have some extra scrap wood lying around, then this diy Plywood End Table Project is for you. We built 2 small end tables and each table cost around $6 dollars to make.

We originally bought a sheet of plywood for $40 and this is the piece we had leftover from our last project. So a quarter sheet is then about $10. We were able to make both table tops and all the skirts pieces out of the sheet and still had a lot of wood scrap afterwards. The 2X2 wood pieces were $0.96 for 8ft. We only used two pieces and still had wood scrap left. The glue, paint and screws we had lying around.

The steps we took and finished product are in the photos below.
