Build a Daisy Console Table

The Daisy Console Table Plans – A Simple to Build Table with Lots of Style

This table is great for all skill levels – plain and simple, and can be finished in a variety of ways! The Daisy console table plans are drawn without a shelf at the bottom but one can easily be added by cutting a piece of plywood and notching the corners to fit. The table is slim enough to fit in virtually any space, plus the top trim can be routed with a decorative edge for an extra fancy touch!

Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs and the side stretchers. With the pocket hole jig set for 3/4″ material, drill pocket holes in each end of the stretchers, as well as one long edge of each 1×6 stretcher to attach the top. Secure the stretchers to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The stretchers will be located 1/4″ back from the outside face of the legs. A close quarter drill or right angle drill attachment may be needed to get into the tight space. (I own both of these tools and they certainly come in handy!)

Step Two

Cut the pieces for the longer stretchers. Drill┬ápocket holes in each end of the stretchers, as well as one long edge of each 1×6 stretcher to attach the top. Secure the stretchers to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The stretchers will be located 1/4″ back from the outside face of the legs.

Step Three

Cut the pieces for the top and the top trim. Drill pocket holes in each end of the shorter trim pieces and all four edges of the top panel. Secure the sides of the trim first, using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws, then secure the longer pieces.

The top will overhang the frame by 3″ on all sides. Secure in place using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.

The table is narrow enough that baskets can actually balance on the lower stretchers, if desired! Have any questions about the Daisy console table plans? Let me know at cher {at} designsbystudioc.com!
