Here we have a DIY Sofa Table woodworking project that anyone can build themselves. We decided to build this as we looked at a few sofa tables at furniture stores in our area that were extremely overpriced and not unique. We then looked on Craigslist and all we could find was old 1970’s era worn out tables. Our table will have a pine wood top, 2 middle shelves and 3 bottom cube shelves made for adding square wicker (rattan) baskets. The total size of this table will be 16″ deep x 48″ long. Total cost of making this table was roughly $85 dollars depending on what type of supplies you may already have. See below for step by step photos. NOTE: Here is a PDF file with FULL detailed sofa table plans that you can print out from another DIY website.
